Pentax old timer

Aloha from The Big Island;
Thanks for excepting me into your forum. I've been shooting 35 mm for 50 years but now I need to learn the digital side. So here I am. Hoping to learn from you.
I started with an Argus C3 (Brick). I bought my first Pentax's in the 80s ( Mg and ME-Super) and I've had very good luck but it's time to dive back in.

The one thing I've found disappointing is there is no behind the lenses that allow the lens and body to communicate. I did my research but even the ones I found reviews on were rated too poorly to justify.

Welcome Dave. Like you I started with the old Argus C3. What a great old camera it was. I think you will enjoy the digital gadgets from Pentax!
