Watcha! I'm Jim from London, current ME Super and ex MX and Super A owner (all film cameras). My DSLR cameras are all from the dark side (Nikon,) but I'm open to suggestions!

Welcome to the forum............have a read of the Pentax K-3 Reviews as you may find them surprising.

Welcome to the Pentax world - if you like manual or semi-manual camera operation you'll find the Pentax flagships are very well designed for user control of all parameters.

Welcome to the forum Jim! Some of us have occasionally strayed to the dark side so no problem there. If there is a shop with Pentax DSLRs try a K-3 in the hand. Pentax does a great job of ergonomics. Looking forward to seeing some of your images.

Welcome to the forum, if you kept your lenses from your film days, it might be worth you getting a Pentax DSLR body to use them on again.
