Greetings from (sometimes) Maryland, USA

Hello all,

I wanted to take a second to introduce myself. I'm Martin, mostly living in Baltimore. I started out with a Honeywell SP500, and seem to get the urge to update every 20 or so years. So I have an SF1, and just succumbed to the K1. I have now joined this forum to learn all that I've missed over the years.

Why have I stayed with Pentax? Actually, I started not to. I went digital with the cheap Canon years ago, and started buying good lenses for it with the Canon EF 100-400. Then I met my wife, who is a much more artistic photographer than me, who owned a 1DX, and I never saw the lens again!

Every now and again, I would check to see if Pentax yet had a FF DSLR. Why? I had this old 15mm rectilinear Pentax lens that needed a home without film. Then, as we were planning a trip to catch the Northern Lights in Tromso, I found the K1!

So now I will resume with Pentax, and look to do landscapes.

Now, about this supply of D-76 that I have...
