I came Back

Well I have been on a long journey down the jumping gear and now jumping back into Pentax....

I have always had a soft spot for Pentax since my youth of many years ago and just can't seem to get them out of my head when it comes to acquiring new gear (old/new), I jumped to Fuji then Nikon and was just about to pull the trigger on a D850 when I stated looking at some of my images from my K-1 I thought hold the press these have excellent sharpness/resolution/color, so I went on a comparison for camera bodies and lenses (have some Nikon glass now for the Z body, BUT.... I found what I think was a great deal on a K-1 with Pentax 24-70 2.8 D FA 24-70 f2.8 ED SDM WR, for what i think was a great deal... I still have some old Pentax glass still as well..... Anyway not to bore you, I can't wait to get my new/old K-1 and get to shooting !!

Welcome back! It really is about what camera works for you and is comfortable. I think all brand make nice gear and lenses these days, but Pentax is what fits me best and doesn't get in the way when I'm trying to make images.
