Hey! Hey! and Holy Cow!

Hello everyone,

Greetings from Chicago! I just want to say thanks in advance. I've been using, well really just viewing this forum for about a year or so and finally decided to join. I have learned a great deal from everyone about photography and the great advantages of the Pentax world. Now, I can experiment freely with some high quality and affordable lenses!

I'm back into photography since taking a class in high school about 15yrs or so ago. I used and old Mamiya and briefly borrowed my teacher's Pentax LX. All I remember is that LX is really heavy! I wanted a dSLR for a while, but bought my brother's Canon XT for cheap--sorry ! Disappointed with it, I recently bought a K1000, some lenses and an EOS adapter. Much better than the Canon kit lens! I need to save up for that K7 and a FA43Limited!

Hi there and welcome to you.

Many of us started with Pentax in our education years, and came back to them after a while. Value and robustness were the hallmarks of those early cameras, and weight was one of the ways we judged those qualities! (A bit like loudspeakers, come to think of it)

I hope you enjoy your time here; just don't take some of the things said occasionally too seriously. You'll find the Forums a great research tool, used with discernment.
