Hello from Ohio

I've been making photos since the late 60's and I'm looking for a new full frame camera.

Still researching at this time, but the K1 is on my short list.

Hi from Australia, and welcome to the Pentax forums ( and maybe the K-1 !!! ). Good to have you aboard.

Welcome.

What type of photography do you prefer? The K-1 is an outstanding camera. IMO it excels at landscapes and night photography. It can obviously do everything else as you'll see from many photos here. You might read complaints that Pentax doesn't have enough lenses but the truth is that just about every need can be met with Pentax. If you need to do telephoto beyond 500mm, ridiculously thin depth of field with a $6000 200mm f2.0 lens, or some other narrow specialty then other brands might be better.

Ohio... I'll be driving through (NY to NE and SD) late summer. Any suggestions for good photo opportunities along the I-80 or I-70 corridor to stretch my legs? I'm already aware of the National Museum of the Air Force (Dayton) and Cuyahoga Valley National Park (Akron).

If you want to take a little extra time and are traveling the 80/90 tollroad, you can get off and take Route 6 along Lake Erie for a while. Or Route 2 outside Toledo goes through some lake wetland/marsh parks.
