Hello from Colorado!

Hello all,

I am an older Pentax owner, older as in I've owned nothing else except Pentax. Started out at 16 with a K1000. Moved up to the ME Super, used that camera until the K10 came out years ago. Since then, I bought a K20 roughly eight years ago and its been my go to camera. I am now in the market for a new Pentax, so I have some research to do. I see the comparison page on here so I am going to jump into that for a few. Possibly looking to go full frame...but not sure yet.

As for my photography, total amateur, but would love to make money doing something i love. Landscape and sports action shots are what enjoying doing. I've even had a couple of my photos published in a book here in western Colorado.

Here are three pictures of my latest work.

welcome

don't know your budget but a sponsor of the forum is still running a deal where you get the K 3 II and its battery grip for about $ 7 more than their cost for the K 3 II by itself

Pentax K-3 II DSLR Camera with Battery Grip Kit B&H # PEK32G (B&H Kit) $ 836.50

Pentax K-3 II DSLR Camera with Battery Grip Kit B&H Photo Video

should you shop at BH go through the forum for special benefits

Welcome, for a landscape photographer you would IMHO, not regret going the K1 FF route for the next Pentax purchase.
