Just getting started in the DSLR world. Did a lot of research and decided on a K-20D for the first camera. I am an old film guy, always liked all manual 35mm SLRs. I was an Olympus user back in the day (OM-1 was my favorite). I have decided to try Pentax for a number of reasons but one of the main ones is the backward compatibility with vintage glass and the fact that Pentax provides metering on pretty much anything you mount on the camera. My first lenses so far are in fact vintage manual focus lenses.

Anyway I am seeing this forum is a wealth of information and wanted to join in and share.

Be sure to check out the lens database, look at the top of the screen under>lenses. It has info on all current and vintage Pentax glass.

Welcome to the forum, I'm still using K20Ds on a daily basis, a fine work horse of a camera... just waiting now for the FF to arrive.
