Greetings from Jamestown Virginia

Just received a K10D for my birthday. First digital SLR camera. A very long time ago I was introduced to working in a darkroom and eventually had Nikon gear. Loved B&W photography. Worked well as I am color blind. This K10D is one fine piece of gear. I got a Tamron 18-200 lens to start out of the gate. After reading the instruction manual - book- I know I have more stuff to learn than years remaining. I hapopened on this site and started to read for hours. I thank you all for the information.

My other hobby is sailing 17th century square rigged ships. I am currently one of the crew members on the Godspeed, Susan Constant, and Discovery out of Jamestown Virginia.

Hope to soak up all the knowledge you folks have and look forward to a productive relationship.

Hey squarerigger, thats gotta be one heck of a bday present. Hey what Nikon lenses do you have. I heard some generations can be mounted on Pentax SLRs. Like directly. Some turn and tighten, others even lock! Ask Sean (carpents) for more info on using Nikkors on K Mount!

welcome squarerigger,
be sure to post some sailing pictures when you take the ship out! (I'm auto challenged and leave mine in M mode mostly).

Welcome to the forum squarerigger. Sounds like sailing 17th century ships can be very exciting! I hope you get to take some pictures to share with us.

You'll find lots of friendly helpful people here, especially with the K10. Jump right in!
