I'm Steve and I am an old film hobbist that had sort of drifted out of photo for a long time. We've moved back to AK and had conjestive heart failure and must go easy. But am taking up photo again. And am trying make the transition to serious digital. After much research I have about dicided to make the jump from nikon 8008 with 85mm 1.8, Om 1 50mm 1.8 and others; to Pentax k20. So if you folks don"t mind I'll just "lurk" for a while to learn all I can.

Hey Welcome, we'll certainly help you all we can. Just familiarise yourself with what goes where (it's worth it) and then ask a question.
