Hi There! I'm Tony

My friends call me Datone (from my softball days). Always have been fascinated with cameras. Finally bought my first serious camera in the early 1980's. It was a Pentax MX. Loved that thing. Then life got in my way and I drifted away from photography. Recently retired and bought a Pentax K-50 about a month ago. Sure is a lot to learn but it's fun all over again!

G'Day Tony,

Welcome to the forums mate.

This is a great place to solve any questions you have on Pentax kit and photography as you get your into the swing of things.

Hi Tony. Like you, I got an MX in the early 80s (still have it) and like you I am also recently retired (sort of - still working occasionally but only when and where I feel like it). Welcome to the Forums. Now you can start giving that K50 a workout. It is a great camera.
