St Louis old timer just found the forum

Been using Pentax since 1959 (ASAHI H2 SLR). Just received my K3-II today (April 8) and am charging the battery before playing. This is a great camera quite a step up for me, can't wait to dig in. I did play a little when I opened the box. Boy, there are lots of buttons and switches and software to keep me busy for a long time. Just bought the body so I'll be using my existing Pentax lenses (28-105 f3.2-4.5 for a walk around). I also have the old 18-55 from my *ist DS and a 75-300 f4.5-5.8, a 80-200 f4.7-5.6 and a 2x rear converter A 2X-S f-2 stops. Hope they will work fine. Wish I could have gotten the lighter 18-135 ($$$). Maybe later.

Anybody want to buy my 80-200 tele-photo? Somebody once told me lenses are like bullets and guns - you can never have too many.
