Hi,
Just joined the forum. My whole life (nearly 62 now) Pentax lover, started in 1976 with a K1000 film DSLR and 2.0/55, soon added a 2.8/24. Great combination, and as everyone you remember your first love best. The sheer joy of a simple yet very good camera with star optics, ans a simple but large viewfinder. Later I bought a KX, and a K2. A 6x7 followed, what a piece of mechanics, and what a photographic joy. That is, if I forget the backpain of getting all the 6x7 equipment along in hikes through Scotland etc.
Not a follower of fashion, nor an early adaptor, I bought a used istDS some 7 years ago; had to struggle with image quality. Getting used to it now, and again pleasure enough with the 21DA. (Also 14DA, 40DA, 50/1.8, and FA's (28/2.8, 35/2).
I am now getting to the point how I can improve image quality further: switch to FF? or a more advanced APS-C, K5 or K3. I posted a question, if 6MP to 24 MP is a BIG difference, or only marginal.
I hope I can contribute to this huge forum, great community.

Hi and welcome to the forum, and thanks for the intro! I see Adam and Jono have responded to your question on the differences between sensor generations. I agree with them - the difference is big in more ways than just resolution.

Good to have you with us!

Welcome to the forum, any of the cameras you mentioned will give you a great leap forward in terms of image quality compared to the earlier days of digital.

ha Hans,

Welkom op het forum!
I went from the *ist ds to the K10 and now the K3. There is a lot more image quality in the K3, not just because of the 24MP, but in the higher ISO's, shake reduction etc.

Of course a K1 would be another jump, at least for landscape and the like, but that would mean less use for the 14 and 21mm lenses.

Greeting from Veenendaal!

Thanks to all of you for your very warm welcome. Really great to see responses from far abroad and nearby! I had a [I]very[I] hopeful response to my first thread about image sharpness. Quite energizing! Hans
