Pentax - Sony - Fuji - Pentax

Hi All
I recently went on a journey, walking away from Pentax to Sony, running from Sony to Fuji. I stayed a little longer at Fuji but 2 days ago I journeyed back to Pentax and am so pleased to have arrived home.

I feel an emotional attachment to Pentax which may sound ridiculous but nonetheless it makes a difference to my photography.

Iím an amateur who only properly started taking photos a few years ago. I have a bad habit of not reading manuals and a stupid tendency to want to discover and learn on my own through trial and error rather than reading/watching instructional material.

Anyway Iím delighted to have found this forum!

I think that's true for a lot of us, Phil - it's Pentax's secret weapon

Most here will identify with your journey. Many of us who have cut their teeth on Pentax have tried other brands. In 2014 I sold off all my Pentax gear to decide what brand to shoot for the next decade. Rented Canon gear for a weekend, did the same with Nikon. Was about to invest in Nikon but stumbled on an excellent deal for a K-5II, rolled the dice on a HD DA 21 to go with it and was hooked. While the K-5II is an exceptional piece of kit; the HD DA Limitedís - their sharpness and drawing style are what keep me in the Pentax system.

Welcome back to the dark side!
