Ah well, best get it over with

I've been lurking a month or two, and I've already learned lots from these boards. So as a first post - THANKS!

Man and boy: film and digital, I've dream't of owning an SLR - since my older brother bought a Canon AE1. Still, other things took financial priority, and subsequently I have always made do with compact, or more recently bridge cameras. I've worn a number out - 2,500 photos posted on Flickr!

Then last December I was offered a bargain. A good condition Pentax K110D with kit lens for only 50! Since then I've started to develop LBA! Help! With the help of this forum, I've discovered 'old manual focus lenses'

Kit so far:

Pentax K110D

SMC Pentax-DA 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 AL
SMC Pentax-M 50mm F1.7
Tamron AF 70-300mm F/4-5.6 Di LD MACRO 1:2

Also a Tokina SD 70-210mm F4.0-5.6 on the way, and as soon as I find some for the right price, one or two 28mm/wide angle MF primes

Fujifilm Finepix S5700 as back up.

Do I like the K110D? I'm loving it - clunk clunk.

Hiho! Welcome to the forum!

My first DSLR was also the K110d and loved it! I still use it as second body. It has my m50 f1.7 almost permanently on it.

Enjoy the board!

Warm welcome to the forums. Probably the premier resource for everything Pentax on the web. On a personal note, my ancestors are from Leicester
