Hello from Italy

Hello everybody,
I am one of the lucky ones who have decided to join the Pentax family with a K3 just a few weeks before the launch of the K3 II but I like the camera so I don't care (I'm a liar you know).
Being shooting pictures since the late seventies, mostly with Nikon cameras and color slides, done some pro work in the past, now photography is only a beloved pastime, the K3 is my second digital camera after two years with a Fujifilm X-E1, just needed a camera capable of working in bad weather - long winters here where I live in Northern Italy - and Pentax seemed the only way to go without spending an awful lot of money.
That's it, I hope to show you soon some good photos.

Welcome! The K-3 is an excellent camera. I find the images it produces are quite similar in quality to my Nikon D800. Definitely one of the best bargains out there.

Welcome to the forum, don't be disheartened the K3 was a flagship Pentax and can still produce stunning imagery, in the right hands of course.

If it's any consolation I've only just found out that the LX is no longer the latest Pentax camera on the market.
