Hello from Spain!

Hi everyone. Just signed up today. Although new to this forum, I'm not newto Pentax, having had Pentax SLR's and lenses since the early eighties. I havethe popular ME-Super (a work horse) and the Pentax LX with the changeable prismviewfinder (probably one of the best cameras Pentax ever made).

The reason I've signed up now is the fact that I've at last, gone digital!What a learning curve!! I've just bought a K-70 and two Sigma lenses, the10-20mm f3.5 and the recent 18-300mm zoom. I still have some great SLR lenses(from the 80's), such as the 20mm, 28mm and 50mm, and they all work perfectlyon the K-70, albeit in manual mode. I also have a Tamron 28-135mm, whichalthough quite heavy, has produced some amazing sharpness on the K-70.
I'm still trying things out, getting to know the camera and all the digital'bells and whistles' that weren't available on SLR's.

I've been following the forum in recent weeks and it has been extremelyhelpful, so naturally the next step was to join. I live in Spain on the Costadel Sol. So if any of you are nearby, please feel free to contact me as I'm'all ears'!

I would also appreciate any hands-on tips for the K-70.

Many thanks in advance and I look forward to chatting with members andmaybe even meeting some of you.

All the best!

Robert

Welcome aboard and certainly no argument from me on that statement.
