Howdy from Austin, Texas

I too have been posting without properly introducing myself...

I am a 40 something Television Station Manager in Austin, Texas, USA.

I began my professional career back in the 80s shooting broadcast video, using Ikegami and Sony news cameras...usually with Fujinon and Canon lenses.

I've always had an interest in still photography, doing student projects and small art shows in college. Then, I shot with a Canon A-1 with their kit lenses ... I had not yet discovered the images possible with Pentax glass!

After a twenty year hiatus from SLR photography, I am pleased to jump back in with a K100D, the 18-55 kit lens, and a 28-300 Sigma zoom for candid shots.

I have a love for landscape images, which Austin is great for.

I have developed an itch to try the classic Pentax and Takumar SMC lenses and hope to put some of these oldies but goodies into my collection someday!

Welcome to the forum germar, you're going to love the K100D and digital photography in general. It is really nice to have the freedom to take a lot of pictures without paying for the film development, you try things you would never have tried before.

Looking forward to seeing the beautiful landscapes around Austin.
