I have been using Pentax since the late 60's starting with a spotmatic.Currently using a K50, however I ordered a K70 about 10 minutes ago, can't wait. Hope to share pics and impressions on the new camera.

Welcome, and hope you enjoy your new acquisition! (Have you kept your old lenses progressively through the years? Your new camera will thank you for it! )

Yes, I have a good supply of glass, even have the 50mm from the spotmatic.

Hey Rick, welcome to the forums - great to have you with us Wow, a K-70 on the way? Congratulations - you'll have to tell us all about it once it arrives. There are quite a number of members here who are seriously interested in that camera!

Cant wait to here your impressions. So many went for the k1 and many grabbed the last k-50 or the k-s2. Not many left for this new toy. I love Pentax /Ricoh trickle up. You get the new stuff to see how it goes.

Hi Rick. Welcome to the Pentax forums. Looking forward to hearing what you think of the K-70. On paper it looks like an excellent camera.
Good to have you here.

Well, you at least will be one new member we don't need to educate on the value of legacy glass! Which fifty do you have?

Classic glass

The 50mm from 50 years ago is a Super-Takumar 1:1.4, and with the adapter it still takes good photos.

Oh yeah. Mine is yellowed as hell, but I discovered the setting to get rid of that in colour on a DSLR, and the only reason I bought a (significantly less yellowed) Super-multi-coated 50/1.4 to supplement it is because my primary M42 shooter is now a Spotmatic F and I wanted the open aperture metering.
