Hello from longtime Pentax user

Hi,
I'm new to the forum but not to Pentax. I bought a Spotmatic many years ago from a Vietnam veteran who had bought it in souteast Asia. It had the Asahi name on it instead of Honeywell, who marketed Pentax in the US in those days. It was and still is a workhorse. So I guess that's why I bought a K-10D instead of a Canon or a Nikon or something else. I've had it a while now and it works great. I really don't understand why Pentax cameras aren't more popular - maybe it's advertising!
