Hello all. Anticipating the arrival of my K-1.

I have long found this forum to be a great source of knowledge.

First SLR experience was my Dad teaching me how to shoot on his Pentax ME Super so I have always had a soft spot for the brand although I tend to bounce around a bit.

More recently I had and enjoyed a K-3ii.

Recently traded another entire system to fund ordering a K-1 which is due to arrive some time in May.

Until then I am kicking around with the K20D I borrowed from my Dad (I purchased for him when his ME Super packed it in on a trip he and my Mother took to the Grand Canyon a while back) and a Takumar 135mm f/2.5 I bought as the first K-1 purchase from keh.com ($39.00) in anticipation of the K-1.

Recent photos of and with the combo here:

Will be taking lens purchases slow after that, but I already have a good idea for what I will be getting first after the legacy 135mm. Definitely will be doing research here as a part of the process.

Have a great day.
