Hi,
I'm new to the forums but enjoying Pentax from 1983 till now, and despite picking ups few strays like Nikon etc (heaven forbid).
I'm happy with my K1 and able to get use my old lenses

Hi t27huw. Welcome to the Pentax forums. The ability to use legacy glass is a great feature of Pentax. Hope to see some of your photographs soon.
Good to have you here.

Welcome to the forums, from the other side of the River Tyne - great to have you with us

Congratulations on your K-1 - I haven't made the jump yet, and probably won't any time soon, but I hear great things about it

Hi ,
Thanks for welcome.
I've kept all my glass while waiting for the full frame body to arrive.
my manual focus skills allow me to adapt quickly.The body is set up so that I can select the focal length even before I mount the lens

Hi,
Thanks for welcome,
Hopefully you'll get one someday and love it just like all the other Pentax gear.
I've tried the other stuff but will never relinquish my Pentax gear.
