I finally decided to jump in here after browsing through the forums intermittently over the past couple years. I really like the lens reviews; fairly objective for something that can be very subjective. I mean, what defines good bokeh anyway?

I've owned a lot of Pentax equipment mainly from my parent's portrait and wedding photography business. We used Hassleblads early and switched to 645's later. My favorite camera is still my LX: what a workhorse.

I got a K-70 last year and really like it and still have a lot to learn. I'm upgrading lenses now and hope to have a good collection in a couple of months.

Welcome Glenn, and beware. This forum is known to exacerbate a condition called LBA. If you're not certain what this is, it is better you don't know!
Enjoy!

Welcome to the forum, IMHO the LX was still Pentax's finest hour.

I suspect that LBA is very similar to GAS (Guitar Acquisition Syndrome) from which I am a recovering GAS-oholic.

I've gone through tons of film lenses and keep telling myself that I only need two zoom lenses (maybe three), two fixed (at least one 1.4), and one macro. We'll see how well I stick to that plan.

Good luck, and may the best of intentions win!
