Hi from Chicago :-)

Hi Everyone,

As you can guess I just joined this forum.

A long time Nikon user since D70 launch, now nearly decided to switch to pentax. Why?, well after D70 newer and less costlier nikons don't support primes and good quality nikkors cost fortunes. So I was searching for a brand that would give me balance of quality body and lenses at a reasonable price point and after reading aroud, I landed here.

I think you have chosen wisely. I love the fact that I not only have great new glass, but I have a bunch of great prime lenses which I bought very cheaply. I'm very satisfied.

Welcome to the forum, the join date and the couple of posts kind of gave it away a bit.

There's some fanstastic Pentax prime glass out there at sensible money, have a look around at some of the threads on this forum.

There is also a lens review section for both Pentax and non Pentax lenses, which is quite a good place to start.

Welcome Sagar. Hoping you'll enjoy the forums as much as you'll enjoy using Pentax.

Guys, thank you for the warm welcome. I have now formally become pentaxian as I just bought K200 here on this forum.

Now too much excited to get it

Please don't mention the winters. We're having a really bad one this year...
