Hello from Southampton UK

Hi All

Having taken delivery of a pre-loved K-70 this week Im enjoying discovering all the features of this delightful camera.

Ive been a user of Pentax cameras since buying an LX back in the 80s which I later supplemented with a used Super A body so that I could shoot B&W + Colour or have fast and slow film available at the same time.

By 2010 I managed to save enough to treat myself to a used K10D which has been my main camera until the K-70 arrived a couple of days ago.

While searching for useful articles on the K-70 I kept getting directed to so it seems the ideal pace to sign up and share my ignorance of all things Pentax.

And another hello ... from New Milton on the Dorset/Hampshire border.

Probably worth you joining Pentax User forums as well (mod can edit that if not allowed .. we often send members here though)
