Hi from Northern California

Hello there from Kevin, in the North Central Valley (which is just clearing from the smoke from the worst wildfires in years).
I've been an amateur photographer for about 35+ years starting with a Practika with screw-mount Zeiss and a second-hand Tamron tele' back then as a poor student, using a Pentax ME and a set of M- and A- lenses acquired gradually over the years, now with a K100d and recently a K20d (and the ME, which still works like new after all that time).
Thank you for a wonderful forum.

Welcome Kevin, I think the skies have only just cleared for the whole of Northern California. Let's hope they stay clear for a while.

Welcome Kevin. You live in one of my favorite neck-o-the-woods. I look forward to seeing some of your images in the post your photos section.

A califolkie welcome to you

Good to have North Central represented... I am in what I call Squarefield, about 45 minutes from San Francisco and 30 minutes from Texas.

As the others have said, the sky just cleared here a bit on monday and was pretty clear today. Just in time for the fires that will be started by the fireworks this weekend.

Post up some N Central pics when you get a chance... You have a long history with pentax so I would love to hear how you are getting along with the K20d... I am on the fence about the K100d to K20 upgrade myself.

Welcome Kevin

Welcome Kevin
I love the K20d. The K100d is a really nice camera to use, light to carry and friendly to use and (like my eldest daughter's istDS) gives great pictures as you well know. It reminds me of the ME in a lot of ways. The K20d is bigger and a good bit heavier to carry but the resolution and image quality, especially on crops, is amazing. Full size view at 1:1 RAW with the DA* 50-135 on the K20d is crisp and sharp without any major post-processing. The build quality is very high, and having a PC socket is nice for the old off-camera lights too. I've only had it a couple of weeks, and I am still learning just what is is capable of, but so far I'm very happy with it.
