...first time poster

I finally joined after purchasing a K-S1 recently. I had been fairly happy on Samsung but was never able to get the exact set up on a camera I wanted.
Then i saw the K-S1 with its' prominent command dial, Pentax menu system i enjoyed on a q10 I used, and the amazingly low price tag.
I'm enjoying the more varied Pentax lens selection, and the fact that I can actually afford a 2.8 standard zoom.
Most of the pictures I take are of my family and such events, especially the passel of grand-kids/nieces/nephews etc. we have now.

Something strange going on with your signature tags, when you click on them they work fine... I just copied and pasted your whole post so you can see what I mean, in case it looks right to you at you end.
