Hello from Chicago

Greetings all. I have been a Pentax user for 35 years. My first was a K100 when I was in High School in 1980 and I have been a loyalist since, having gone through multiple film models and digital models. My most recent acquisition is a K3. I actually bought one when they were first introduced and had to replace it a few weeks ago after it was stolen. Anyway, happy to be here and looking forward to learning. I will be researching and posting a certain problem that I am having, but that is for another thread.

Welcome from an ex-Chicagoan (Rogers Park, represent!).
Lots of helpful people here, and after you get your problem sorted out, we all look forward to seeing some of your photos with your "new" K-3.

(Also sorry to hear about the loss of your previous one. Hope it was insured!)

Welcome from Dundee. We have a Chicago Pentaxians group but never have been able to get an outing arranged.

Welcome aboard, always good to have long time Pentax members here, they get the difficult questions to answer.

Thank you all for the warm welcome. I just got back form a trip and will be posting regarding the problem I am experiencing with my K3 and Sigma 70-200f/2.8 lens.
