Lured back by the K-1!!!

Hey all,
I used to lurk around these parts a few years ago with my first ever DSLR, the mighty K-7...and loved it!
Got drawn away by full frame options with various other brands as well as rangefinders and have now found my way back to where it all began with the K-1 and a few Pentax and Leica lenses.
I love the colour rendition provided by these brands and can't wait to get stuck back in and have a go on full frame.

It's great to see a few familiar names still kicking around the place too

Cheers, Sam

Welcome back! You won't regret your choice

I'm probably a new face since you were last here, and there are a lot of people coming and going all the time, but there are definitely a few old stalwarts (if they don't mind me calling them that) around

Welcome. I too, was drawn back by the K-1 (after dropping to less and less in my film photography over the years). You made a good decision with the K-1so be sure to enjoy yourself using it. A great DSLR!
