New from central Pennsylvania

Hi all Pentax fans. My name is Ken and I live in State College, Pennsylvania, amidst some very pretty ridges and bucolic valleys. I teach at Penn State University (Joe Paterno's home), and am originally from the Toronto area (I'm a dual citizen).

I was a dedicated SLR user for years (Konica T4, Canon AE1, but I always lusted after the compact Pentaxes...), plus a few digital prosumers, but am thrilled to have just purchased a 20KD. I'm on the lookout for the sweet pancake lenses for upcoming field research in India/Nepal and Africa (Ghana/Tanzania).

A final bit of trivia: I ride a KLR650 dual sport, which is I think of as the Pentax of motorcycles.

Hi Di. Is that the African Gold Coast or the Aussie one?
