Hi, New user from St. Louis

I have had a number of Pentax point and shoots and used a Canon 35mm elanIIe film camera. I was so impressed with Pentax point and shoots that when it was time to purchase a dslr, there was only one choice. My k200d is much better than I am, but I'm getting more familiar, i.e. better every time I get it out of the case. Santa(my wife) gave me the 50mm f/1.4 Pentax lense for Christmas. It is a wonderful little lense. I can't wait to see what kind of stop action I will be able to get at my daughters club volleyball tournaments! Anyway, Hello to everyone. I'm excited to be able to learn alot about digital photography with other Pentax owners.

Welcome, fellow St. Louisan.

I have the 50mm f/1.4, and have had very good success shooting basketball and Tae Kwon Doe indoors...
