Old Pentaxian Greeting

Hi All, I have just found this forum, and am hoping to be able to add something semi intelligent in the future.
I started using Pentax in the form of a K1000 with a 50mm prime and a 70-210 one-touch zoom way back in the early 80's, and it was only retired 3 years ago, a good old workhorse.
Digital has taken over now, and while it is actually a lot more work, I am managing to get my head around it slowly.

The K1000 was a great camera that many of us loved and learned photography on. Digital gets easier with time. Seems overwhelming at first.

Welcome to the forums.
