Hello from Texas

Hello! I've been curious about Pentax since I first worked in a camera store years ago. Haven't made the leap yet, but I'm looking into getting my first Pentax body very soon.

Welcome to the best camera Forum in the world...and the biggest! If you can't find it here, you can't find it anywhere!

I'm here in is Tina and several others. Great place here at PForums! I just got myself a new K5IIs and I want to say it is an amazing camera, the best Pentax I have ever owned, and I've owned most every Pentax digital DSLR.

The K3 may be the camera for you, the price is right and it has received superb ratings. The photos I see in the K3 thread are amazing too! There are lots of choices, just find the Pentax that fits your needs best and jump in...there are hundreds, thousands even, here to help you should it be required....and we are all friendly without condescending remarks to any question you may have.....this is not like other camera sites, it is the best and most friendly....just like Real Texans! The only exception may be don't know Otis, but you will in time...we just sort of overlook Otis and his rantings......he means well, but he is a little squirrely at times!

Best Regards....Don't wait, just jump in and start having fun here....we'll be watching for you!

- Go back and edit your profile to show that you are from Texas. Otis gives extra special attention to people from Texas.......he just loves Tina!

Hello from Texas
Welcome to the forum, I was going to warn you about Otis, but it seems I'm already too late.

Welcome fellow Texan! This forum is a great place. I think Pentax gear is mighty fine too (plenty to choose from).

Welcome from a few states over in Mississippi! Now seems like the perfect time to buy a K3. I got mine last fall and haven't looked back. You know you'd enjoy it

I'm in Austin with my new K-3 which replaced my K-20. Incredible camera. Of course, I still shoot film with my KX every now and then.
