Hello all,

I've been perusing this site for awhile now that I've become a Pentax shooter and really have appreciated it as a resource for researching lens, shooting techniques, etc. We recently had our first child so I wanted to up my photography game (was using an Olympus Pen EP-L1) and I have really enjoyed the Pentax experience.

Thanks for the advice. Glad to be here!

Nice of you to join. I'm new here to. But have had many different cameras in my life time.
As far as Pentax mounts go the first one I had was a Russian Zenit E with an M42 screw. The saying was that it was the only camera you could take to an Irish wedding and would still be working at the end.
Today I have a K50. Just a little bit different from the Zenit as they both take pixs, just the K50 makes it a whole lot easier.
Hope you enjoy the forum.
Here's something I just took today with a K mount 500mm come 750mm in APSc. Hope you and your other half like it.
