Greetings from south Louisiana!

Hi. I'm an old pentax user, but just retired and am gearing up to enjoy my photography again.
I owned a spotmatic F as my main user back in the day. I then upgraded to what I consider the best film pentax, the ES II. I still own 3 of them. Of course I had to have the latest and greatest as they came along. I bought and used a K2, K2DMD, ME super, LX, SF 1, PZ1P, MZS, even a 67II, and then sort of fizzled out for several years when work became a 60 hour per week grind.

I bought a K10d about 10 years ago, and used it sparingly, mostly for family gathering. On the other hand, I DIY converted a Canon G5 to infrared only and have taken lots of infrared photos over the past several years.

Then, I made a conscious effort to reintroduce myself to photography. I bought and received today a K5 IIs, and I am very excited to get back into the "game."

So, here I am, Pentaxia.

Welcome to the forum Sid!
The K-5iis is a great camera. Like you, I also have a SF1 (Called and SFX here).
Kind regards,
