Hello everyone!
Just discovered the Pentax forum and excited to participate. Getting back into shooting after a long break. Just made the decision NOT to sell my film equipment/lens and to pursue shooting with film for " a bit longer". I will likely also purchase a used DSLR Pentax since there is some great equipment out there for reasonable prices.
that's all for now!

Welcome aboard! What film bodies are you shooting with?

As for DSLRs, I'd recommend the K-50 (new), K-S2 (new), K-5 (used), or K-3 (used). All can be obtained at very reasonable prices and are quite capable. The latter two are from Pentax's flagship line.

Hi carmencip. Welcome to the Pentax forums. Glad you have started up photography again. Lots of members here still use film, so any help you may need with either film or digital is only a question away.

Thank you all for the Welcome. I have a ZX-7 and ZX-M body and a few pentax lens. My favorite being the FA 50mm 1.4.

Adam, visiting Arizona in the Fall and looking forward to some great pictures in the red rocks. Thanks for the recommendations on digital.
