Hi , I am a very amateur photographer, with a decent point and shoot which I love playing with. I have inherited my father's Pentax film camera and many excellent accessories, I would like to get a digital body and learn as much as I can. I have a friend who belongs to this sight and suggested I should join.
I am excited about this new adventure

Welcome! Depending upon what you want to spend, there's loads of great digital body options out there. I opted for a K70, good value with modern features. But I still use my old *ist Dl2 (6 mp!) With my old film lenses and it does just fine. You can pick those up for about 40.... enjoy!

Welcome of the Forums (from Downunder). You can use your film era Pentax lenses in manual mode on a Pentax DSLR. Many of them a very good lenses. the lens reviews here will tell you a bit about them.
