Hey there!
Great luck to have found this forum! I have been a Pentax user since I received my K1000 as a Christmas gift in 1981 (I still own it). I advanced my film camera to the PZ-1p and moved on to digital with the K10D, then the K20D which I've been using since it was introduced. I just purchased a brand new K-3 II that I am very excited to learn about and start using. I will keep my K20D as my back up. I've found this forum a great source of info and look forward to discussing photography and sharing my experience with my new equipment.

Welcome to the forums. I have had the K-1000, K-20D, and now have a K-3II also. The K-3II is capable of excellent results.

Welcome to the forums.

I gave my K-1000 to my son who later sold it without offering it back to me. I'll never make that mistake again.

You will enjoy your K-3II. It was made at a time when it was the latest and greatest because it was so much better than what came before. Things have slowed down a bit since.
