new k3 user

hi, already had cause to refer to these forums many times since getting my first Pentax - K3, rather than continue down the Nikon route. Also use Fujifilm xe2 and little carry arounds of Fujifilm x10 and Samsung nx3000. Enjoying the K3 and been navigating the early issues (default settings for jpegs frustrated till I got a handle on it). And started investigating manual lenses - hence my joining this forum and the reason for my first post on the beginnners forum.

Welcome to PF. I also have a K-3 - it's a very well-designed and well-built camera. If you like manual lenses Pentax gives you access to 40+ years worth in K - mount and M42. And loads of information and help here.

Welcome to both the forum and the slippery slope to full blown LBA.

Welcome to the forums - good to have you with us!

A warning about manual lenses - they can trigger the start of LBA (lens buying addiction)!!
