Hello Pentax'ers

Greetings - I am a lapsed Pentax film shooter with all my original bodies (KA & MX) and lenses but am looking to pick up a great DSLR body and get back into the fold - so to speak. Hopefully you shall hear more from me in the coming future!

We hope so! Welcome back Melikatom. If you need advice on what gear you might consider there's lots of helpful folks here. Just shout out a budget and what types of shooting you're interested in to start out. Knowing what you already have for good older glass will help too.

Look forward to seeing your work. In the meantime look at some of the camera reviews here on the mainpage and if you need to get up to speed with digital start with this forum section:

Welcome to the clubhouse!

I'd introduce you to the Marketplace where you can get some great deals on used gear. Buying it here is usually safe, you can be fairly sure the gear has been well-maintained.
