A new member with a new K-1

Greetings! I took my K20d in to have it cleaned and walked out with a K-1! Just to clarify, I Bought the K-1. and I WILL go back to pickup my K20 when they've finished. (they offered $60.00 trade in) I may send it off for the infrared conversion but will probably just hold on to it as a backup.
This will make the third Pentax dslr I have had. I enjoyed the first two and expect the new one will follow suit as well.

I'm sure you will LOVE the K-1. Especially if you have some old full frame glass.

Welcome aboard.

Let this be a lesson to all. Never handle a Pentax K1. I handed my K1 to a friend of mine who has been a Nikon user for 45 years. Even he was affected by it. He loved it. Still staying Nikon because of his glass, but he was mightily impressed.

Wow, that was quite the change!

Welcome to the forums! How do you like your K-1? It is a very different beast to your K20D, I'm sure, so let us know your "newbie" experience! :-)

Welcome to the clubhouse!

I thought I had retired my older body, a K-5D. Now it's part of my two-camera field rig - mounting the DA300 while the K3II gets the FA100 macro. The old bodies still have a lot of use, you'll find uses for it, I'm sure.
