Good to be back to Pentax

With the recent purchase of the K-3, I'm happy to be back to my favorite brand. It's my first Pentax DSLR and I'm already impressed when comparing it with the competition.

I'm loving the fact that I can use the lenses I bought for my ME Super (purchased new in '83...and I've still got it and the lenses.)

For DSLRs over the past decade, I've been using Sonys (and the compatible Minolta lenses.) I admit I'm having a hard giving up my "benchmark" camera: the Sony RX1. Despite its limitations, it takes the best photos I've ever seen. But I'm finding them only marginally better than what I'm getting from the it may get listed on eBay this summer.

Anyway, I digress. Happy to be here, none-the-less.


- Eric

Welcome! My ME Super was also purchased around '83. Hope you have plenty to share with us, from either era
