Hello from Conn. New DSLR.

Hello all,

After spending a few years with a Nikon D50 I have to admit I wasn't planning on
buying a new camera, especially one that would pretty much be considered a
lateral move.... but!!!! I came across a "new in box" K100D Super (body) this
week that was sitting around at my local Ritz camera. Bought it on clearance for $297!!!!

I figured it would be a good excuse to start buying some of those nice Pentax
lenses. The 40mm pancake is next months purchase.

I threw on the kit lens which I bought separately and since it was night time
I tried out some low light shots. Set at "Program", ISO 1600 with the SR on, I really
liked the way the camera reproduced sharp and clear shots in such low light and
with good WB results with the WB set on tungsten.

With all the helpful info I have gathered on here, I look forward to PentaxForums
everyday now.
