Hello from the Buckeye State~

Hi, good evening!

My name is Mory, I live in Columbus, OH. I've been shooting with a K5 and a variety of lenses since around 2012. I just bought a used K3ii from Adorama, and excitedly waiting by the mailbox for it to arrive! Besides the kit lens, I have that Promaster 18-35 (I think that's what it is), and a Pentax 18-135 that is my usual lens.

Before the K5, I was a Canon guy, and still have my old 20D. But, my mom has an old Asahi-Pentax camera body, so that's why I've switched from Canon to Pentax...

Looking forward to learning from everyone!!

Welcome Mory,
Enjoy that K3ii and hope to see you post some photos here. I love to shoot in the Columbus area when I get the chance, which is less since my daughter moved from Columbus.

Welcome. Not sure what you mean by " my mom has an old Asahi-Pentax camera body, so that's what I've switched." but that Spotmatic is a quality machine if you are thinking of using film.

Thanks for the catch. I meant "...that's why I switched from Canon to Pentax..."

Welcome aboard! I'm from Michigan, and I have a cousin in the Columbus area. The K-5 is a great camera, and the K-3II offers many upgrades!
