Hello from a new member

Glad to enter the forum !
Some 4 years ago I changed from Nikon to a Pentax K-5 and I have had no regrets. Nevertheless, my brand new K-3 II is going back to the shop (SN with power off "risk" + recent mirror flop event).
There is no specific focus in my photography, mainly my children and grandchildren, and travelling photography.
As far as lenses is concerned, I have recently changed from the Pentax DA 18-135mm zoom to the HD Pentax DA 16-85mm zoom, because I felt the higher pixel count of the K-3 had to be matched by a sharper lens. For the same reason I have done away with filters. For special occasions I have the DA* 55mm F1.4 lens, but I am often too lazy (and a bit reluctant ...scared of dust...) to put the latter on the camera.
All my shots are taken in RAW (DNG) and I enjoy processing them in Lightroom.
Greetings from Belgium
PS: I came across the flowered window (see attachment) in lovely northwestern Spain
