Hello from Maryland/DC

Hi everyone,

I am glad to be back in the Pentax world after an extended absence.

I first started shooting Pentax in 1978 with my trusty ME. Over the years, I shot with an ME Super, an LX, a 645N, and a PZ-1P. I made the move to Nikon when I went digital about 11 years ago, but I kept my LX and a few Pentax lenses.

I picked up a used K-5iis a few months back and have added a few modern lenses to accompany my legacy glass. I am happy to say that I am quite pleased with the ergonomics of the camera and the quality of the images I am getting. I much prefer the K-5 to my D7000, which I have since sold.

Looking forward to adding to my lens collection, and I am very excited to hear about the upcoming Full Frame body.

Welcome aboard!
I used to get out to Baltimore/Northern VA for work years ago. There are LOTS of great photography venues out there.
