Hi from Raleigh, North Carolina!!

Hey guys, I forgot to introduce myself when I joined a little while back as I was first getting into Pentax photography. I picked up a K200D a couple months ago and haven't looked back since. I really love the dedication to backwards compatibility of the Pentax Cameras. It's amazing to be able to use 30 year old high quality glass without any modifications!

Sadly enough, I have already succumbed to the dreary depths of LBA...but it's just too fun playing around with all the different older lenses, and manual focus is a pleasure with the older gems.

I'll be looking forward to your discussions and comments, as well as adding my own thoughts and comments to the questions and photography of others.

Glad to be here!

Welcome, backward lens compatability is just one of the joys of Pentax ownership.
