I've been a lurker for a few months, and hope to be able to contribute to the forum somehow. Anyway, this is my first post.

A little background to what brought me here...
...After gifting my Nikon d5200 (a really good camera btw) to my brother-in-law this past winter (really just to offload it so I could talk the wife into getting a new FF camera). I was interested in the Nikon d750 holiday deal price point that they had at the time (and probably still have available now) but didn't feel that I'd be satisfied,with the mix and match of capabilities vs price. This lead me to other options, Pentax being one of several.

I really had no bone in the manufacturer competition (Nikon vs Canon vs Sony vs Fugi vs Pentax vs whoever else.) I came upon this website in my research after visiting various cameras rating sites, and digesting the good of what folks say and the bad of what folks say regarding each camera brand..

Well, I'm here lurking, and with the K1 and K1ii as two FF cameras available from Pentax, the pictures posted in the K1 picture forums won me over...really a tribute to the talented photographers who post in that forum displaying thier artistic talents and also the capabilities of the K1 format...a tip of the hat to Pentax.

Anyway thanks for bringing me here.

I think Pentax is a wise decision.
