Hey from NC

Hello from western NC.

Currently looking for a Pentax dslr so I can use my ME lenses and filters.

Looking forward to learning about the Pentax digital cameras.

Don

Welcome to this site. There is also a Carolina Pentaxian group you might want to join.

What sort of DSLR are you looking for? You'll find lots of information and advice here.

I'm leaning towards either the K30 or K50 with the 18-135 zoom. Need not be new, used in good condition would be okay.

I'll check out the CP group. Thanks.

I'm in the Charlotte area and have a spare k50 that you could look at for the hands on experience if you make it down this way. Not for sale but it could help you decide.

Thanks UncleVanya. If I head down that way I'll send you a PM and maybe we can set up a meet.

You are surely aware by now that there is a Marketplace on this site. Plenty of used DSLRs there on a regular basis....

And hello from MessyChewBits. Spent some pleasant days along the east and west edges of NC. As sholtzma, you might find good deals on some of the equipment you want in the Pentax Equipment For Sale under buy-sell.
