Hello from WA

I was curious about the Pentax digital platform after experimenting with the other top brands. I tend to lose pationce when I sense a particular marketing strategy that incrementally rolls out products with slight improvements yet with enormous increases in cost. Such was Sony. I moved on to Olympus, and while I love many things about their system, I was still needing a larger sensor to get the bokeh I was after. I bought a used K-3 online to test the dynamic range and overall usability and was sold. I bought a 60-250 lens and have had wonderful results. I will be marketing some of my Olympus gear this weekend as I realize now that it too fills a nitch, but plan to build on my Pentax go bag. I will be looking into the K-70 as it seems to have similar features as the Olympus and will probably be sticking with the APS-C sensor.

Thank you all in advance for your advice and contributions into making this site a solid source of information and enjoyment.
