Been a Pentax user since 1979, using a K1000 back then, and still have it. Looking to get the K1 mark ii.

Well you're in the right place--Welcome Aboard... Pentax has certainly changed since your K1000, but that is a revered classic film shooter....There are many loyal and dedicated "pentaxians" here who are excellent photographers. When I joined here about 6 months ago, I was impressed with the tutorials, the creativity of the members and how lively the discussions, comments and contests are.

I became a site supporter because of the value of helping this site sustain itself. I was a Canon/Nikon shooter, until about 2001, then I switched to Leica. However, I still missed the SLR mode of photography and when I switched over to Pentax, I was amazed at the quality and attention they put into their new digital line. After almost 20 years of shooting
Pentax, I presently have about 2 dozen lenses and 4 bodies (just bought a K-5 ii as a walkabout shooter because I missed the 16.3 mp sensor renderings I had with the K-50).

Best of luck and take care.
