Greetings from a longtime lurker, first time poster

Hi -

I have been a member for over a year and a half and have enjoyed reading posts, reviews, etc. I bought my first Pentax, a K-70, in the fall of 2016 and have really enjoyed it. Prior to that I had a Samsung but discovered quickly that those that had posted in other forums that a viewfinder is absolutely necessary were correct. I recently was able to get a great deal on a new KP and am really liking the camera along with the two limited primes I also just got (35 macro and the 70mm). I'm still pretty much a beginner at this photography thing. I wish I had realized how much I would enjoy it much earlier in life (though I'm only 51...).

Anyway, greetings from Wisconsin.

More talent to feed our image addictions, hopefully.

Thank you all! It's good to be here. Looking forward to our annual (at least) trip to the North Shore of Lake Superior in a few weeks. Always good for some awesome photo opportunities. Really looking forward to having the KP with this year.
