Another Introduction so I can keep learning...

Well let me introduce myself.
I'm new to dslr cameras after shooting digital p&s for about 5 years, and film p&s and slr forever before that.
I ended up with a K10D that I purchased 12/07 after shopping primarily canon and nikon. I own a K1000 but don't have enough glass to have made Pentax the preferred choice. The deciding factor for me was first and foremost how the camera felt in my hand. My shooting style is mostly hand held, and to hold the camera when not shooting, so the feel of the camera was very important to me. The next most important factor for me was image stabilization, and I gave more emphasis to in-body versus in-lenses. And of coarse value for the dollar always factors in, so Pentax won my business with the K10D.
I have no regrets with the K10 or Pentax, and as a casual photographer I have so much to learn about my camera and photography. That is what brought me to sites like and it is now the only site I still read on a regular basis.
So excuse me if I don't post at regular intervals, but once I learn enough to contribute, I will offer what I can. In the mean time I will continue to read and learn.

And thanks to all those who provide this site and those who contribute so I can learn.
There is so much to learn…
