Hello Everyone, I'm new here

I'm new to this forum and I hope to learn much from my fellow forum members. I've been taking pictures and working in the darkroom since 1963. Stopped darkroom work in 1993 but am glad to get back into photo work with my introduction to the digital world.

My first digital was an Olympus Fe-170, from there I moved to a Pentax K-10D with the 18-55mm kit lens. I've since acquired a 50-200mm Pentax DA lens which I like quite well.

I'm not new to Pentax, I started with Pentax with the ME Super and the MX and they have been my primary cameras, especially the ME Super, up until my purchase of the K-10D. I'm currently thinking about purchasing a flash and considering the AF-540 FGZ. If anyone has had experience with that flash, good or bad, I'd sure like to know about it.

Thanks in advance for all of the information that I'm sure that I will glean from all of you.

Jim:

Welcome to the forum Jim, I'm sure your dark room skills will be well sought after here.
I sent you a PM by the way.
