Hello from the Cape Cod Canal area of MA.

Hi everyone,
I've been lurking around here for several months and figured it's time to introduce myself. I just returned from a 25+ year vacation from photography (weddings) and am amazed at how the equipment has change/evolved since.
Last fall I jumped back in and bought my first DSLR from a near by Wally World, one of the two big names they sell in a kit. Did not really care much for the learning curve in getting the camera to do what I wanted and had concerns about it serviving in the elements. After doing a little more research I ended up with a K-50 with the 2 'E-dials', weather sealing and price being the deciding factors. I didn't even think Pentax was still in business till I stumbled on to PF! This site was a great find, full of good information and friendly people!

Have a great day all

Welcome! Yep, your thought process is pretty much the same path I took to Pentax. I totally envy your location, btw.

I've been over that canal, but it's been a very, very long time ago (decades). Those of us in western MessyChewBits, as you probably know, only travel east when there's some requirement to do so. More likely to go North or West than East or South.

Welcome back. Having those two wheels makes photography very much like the old film days when you balanced shutter speed and aperture. It's why I like TAv mode so much.
