Hello to everyone!

Hello to everyone! Even though I have been using this fantastic forum since May, I created my account only today. I would say that I became a Pentax owner by chance. At the end of April, I was looking for a new superzoom lens to replace the 18-55mm on my Canon 1200d which I bought used a year earlier. By chance I found the website of a small store in my country that sell used photography gear and there was a good discount for a Sigma 18-300mm Contemporary. It was the perfect lens but with the wrong mount, I was quite disappointed and sad! The next day, still looking for the right lens, I found a used Pentax KS-2. Without thinking twice, I bought the camera and the lens found the day earlier and so, unintentionally, I became a Pentax owner!
A week ago, I received as a gift a Pentax K-3 II with the 16-85mm. Im still learning all the features but I already found it to be phenomenal. I am a super proud Pentax owner!

Welcome to Pentax Forums. I also have a K-3 II that I use with a Pentax 16-85. They are both excellent performers.
