Returning Pentaxian

Hello Folks,
I am a hobbyist taking pictures of my family, family trips and local events that my kids attend.
My passion is travel and landscape photography (that I suck at).
I was a Pentaxian from 1999, shooting with film cameras, ME Super, P30t and SFXn.
In 2003 I bought the first Pentax DSLR, *ist D, on the very first week it was available online. I enjoyed and loved the digital experience.
Later I upgraded to K10D and K5IIs, bought some DA lenses and was eagerly waiting for PK fullframe.
Before it became a reality I borrowed a small Fujifilm mirrorles from a friend and later that year I sold all my Pentax gear
I own X-T3 and a nice set of excellent XF lenses now and I am happy with it, but I still found myself browsing ebay for a used K-1.
Well, this week it arrived and I am in love again! Actually, I bought it from a fellow PF member.
Too bad I only have one lens left, A70-210 f/4, that I was unable to sell.
The attached picture of my daughter is just a quick test to see if the body works ok.
D FA 15-30 is ordered, I can't wait to take it for a hike.

Welcome to the forum! I'm a past SFXn shooter too.
When you get that lens, please post some mages.

Kind regards,

The real purpose of all of this digital/mirrorless stuff is to enjoy what you do, or make money selling photos or both!......a very nice shot of your daughter by the way....[I am listening to Benny Goodman as I type], such a wonderful world that is possible these days...
