Hello from Columbus

I just joined this Pentax forum. It seems like a good place to learn something about the Pentax digital cameras. I'm now retired, but have been using film cameras for photography for nearly 70 years, including everything from 35mm to 8x10. I still have my Pentax 6x7 and 645 outfits and a couple of old 35mm film Pentaxes, but since about 2001 I've been using digital cameras, mostly Nikon, Sony and Panasonic.

I find the recently announced Pentax K1 very interesting, but am not up to speed on the current Pentax lineup. So I came here to learn as much as I can about the latest Pentax digital cameras and lenses.

Welcome from an ex-pat Buckeye!

The DSLR market has really matured in the past 5 years or so.
