Joining the Pentax fold

Hey all!

Having dabbled in photography for some time, I decided on the K-70 as my first DSLR, (I've used the 7D, but this is the first I've owned)
I'm loving it so far, and I was pleased to find I'm liking a lot about the Pentax brand as a whole. I'd previously never given them much consideration as I was always under the impression that they were just a cheap no-good brand... like Polaroid or something.

Will be providing some pics soon!

Welcome aboard! The K-70 is a fine choice- quite a capable body given its price.

Welcome, even though you have admitted the error of your ways...I'd still whisper talk like that around here.

Hi Leumas. Welcome to the Pentax forums. Many here ( me included !! ) are interested in what the K-70 can do, so your photographs will be welcome.
Good to have you here.

An excerpt from the Pentax timeline

1966 1 million SLRs!

After only 14 years of manufacturing, PENTAX produces its one millionth 35mm SLR camera.

That was a very good year, if I do say so myself.

Welcome to the forums, plenty to see and learn about Pentax and photography in general, and as PJV said, your photographs are welcome.
