New to forum and Pentax

Hello and thanks to all of the great people and info on this forum. I just purchased a K20d, DA18-55II, and DA55-300 before the holidays and received a FA50/1.4 for Christmas. I thoroughly researched all brands before I choose Pentax and it was with help from the info on this forum that helped in my decision.

I previously had a Olympus OM-1 with lenses from 24-500 (a mix of Zuiko, Sigma, & Vivatar) To me Pentax is similar to my old OM, quality glass and a no nonsense user base.

I look forward to more info and hope to become an active member.

My biggest hurdle is exploiting auto-exposure, since the old OM-1's did not have this. I now have a camera with AE and I am now just shot happy with out much thought to the picture being taken.

I am going to start using a mix of manual and AE just so there is some more thought going on when I take the picture (when the opportunity exists ie... if the shot is not time critical like landscapes or abstracts).
