New member, not new to pentax

I learned some slr skills on my parents 70s era k1000 which I eventually was given. Even used itwhen my first child was born. Was looking for some auto focus once he was mobile and picked up a zx-50. Switched to a Fuji point and shoot for a while, and as phones surpassed it relied on my iPhone to serve as family shooter. Wanting more options, I re-entered pentax with a KS-1, and still have my old f and fa lenses that I currently am using. I do this just for fun, but want to learn more, so here I am.

Welcome to the forums. I used to use my K-1000 for fllm, now I resort to my K-5IIS and K-3II for digital shooting.
