Hi from Moscow, Russia

Hello everybody!

I am not completely new to photography, but new to Pentax world. Many years ago I started with old soviet 35mm-film Zenit-E, later used film SLR Minoltas, but nothing really serious as it was always a hobby for me, so later I decided that Fujifilm S7000 compact camera would be enough, and for some time it was, but finally several months ago I bought Pentax K-70. And very soon I understood that I need to know much about my camera, lenses, etc., to get really good pictures. I started to search for good sources of knowledge in Internet and found this place. I do like it.

Hi from Australia Alexey. Welcome to the Pentax forums, and the K-70. Any help you may need is only a question from you away.
Good to have you here.

I've been to Chicago twice. Nice place. The only thing I regret is that it was before I've got my Pentax camera
