Another Grand Return!

Hello! My name is Aaron. I used to post semi-frequently on here back around 2013-1014, but due to life circumstances I had to sell off my gear back then. I'm happy to say that life is good now and that I'm back in the game. My loyalty to Pentax has never wavered and now I'm glad to be able to hold some wonderful Pentax glass in my hands again.

K-5 IIs
SMC Pentax-FA 50mm F1.4
SMC Pentax-D FA 100mm F2.8 Macro
Sigma 18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 DC
Takumar-F 28-80mm F3.5-4.5

I do eventually want to pick up a K-1 but the K-5 IIs is a beloved camera for a reason. I'm quite happy with it. I can't wait to get out this weekend and do some outdoor shooting to put this thing to the test. More than that, though, I'm just happy to be a Pentaxian again!

Hi Aaron, and welcome back to the forums!

Glad to hear things are better for you now, and congratulations on your fine setup... the K-5IIs is one heck of a camera and will serve you very well, whatever else you may or may not buy in future.

Looking forward to your involvement here again

Welcome back. Not sure how many people who were posting in 2013 are still posting now. I think I was around then, but I can't remember for sure...
