New to the Pentax forum

I have been a photographer for many years. I Started at my brothers wedding in 1965. I enjoy many types of photography. In the early 70s I bought a Ricoh film camera. Over the years, I used several different Ricoh Cameras. In 2006 I was looking to go digital. I went in to a local camera store. The sales person used to work AP. He told me of the many years of dependable service he had using a Pentax Camera. I purchased a Pentax K100. A few years later I bought a K10. Last spring I went for the K3. I am a serious amateur. I tell anyone that will lessen about why I prefer Pentax over the others.

Donald, a warm welcome to the forums! I also went from the K10 to the K3, and absolutely am amazed by the capabilities of the K3!

Enjoy browsing around the forums here, and please don't hesitate to post any questions you may have, or any tips, etc., you may have!
