New Pentaxian from Nothern CA

Hello All,

After months and months of trying to get a DSLR. I finally bit the bullet and wanted a Pentax. It was a big choice between Nikon D40 and Pentax K100D.

It was a tough choice. A more popular D40 vs non-Kucher- marketed K100D.

2 things swung me over. Internal Image stabilization and AA BATTs. I just wanted a DSLR to play and have fun with.

Never I imagine to get a camera from a forum. I stumbled on this forum when I was researching on K100D, and poof bought a camera body + 2 lens within a couple of weeks. I am ready to shoot. hahaah ....I am just being silly, shooting at anything and everything that moves or dont.

Anyways glad to see there is still pentaxians here.

My Kit:
Pentax K100D
Pentax 18-55mm
Quantaray 70-300mm

Thanks again to members of this forum.

I Live in Benicia and work in American Canyon. I travel the entire Bay Area at least 2-3 times a week.

I moved from PA last year for this job and after settling in. I find that the bay area is quite scenic, expect San Jose (IMO). This sort inspired the photographer in me. lol

Good to see many other Bay Area members too.

yeah it is just houses. Nearby Walmart there is a business park. Right on Sonoma Blvd. But we are planning to move the office down towards east bay ...but i like benicia so far. Might not be inclined to move unless rent is cheaper.
