Hello from Toronto

Hi everyone,

Finally getting more social with my photography hobby and joining some of the forums that have been instrumental in my learning process. I started getting serious about photography last spring after picking up a Zenit-E from a local vintage market. The Zenit crapped out after 3 rolls so I bought a Spotmatic and some Takumar lenses and haven't looked back. For digital I went with a used K-7 and paired it with a used DA 18-250 for some easy daytime shoots, it's been a solid camera.

Pentax Forums has been really helpful with lens and body reviews and the forums have been a great source of knowledge, so I'm happy to finally join!

Hi Mike and welcome to the forums. My first SLR was a used Spotmatic back in 1979 and I've had at least one Pentax camera in my bag ever since.

Welcome. Altogether I lived 20 years in Toronto, but I've been gone for 10 now.

Hello Mike - welcome to the forums and the world of Pentax

This place has been instrumental in my own learning too. I sometimes wonder how long it would have taken me to get this far back in the days before the internet!
