Greetings from the Hinterlands (Ohio)


While searching around for information about my Pentax P3, in a fit of renewed shutterbuggery, I happened upon Pentax Forums. I could hit my head for not having tried to find something like this first. In a few days I've already relearned everything I'd forgotten and learned more, and have especially enjoyed the discussions on older gear and film types.

I currently have only a Promaster 70-210mm f/4.5-5.6 lens, and I've been convinced for years that it's inferior to the 135mm f/4.5 (I think) lens I bought with the camera (both used). Quite possibly, any inferiority in my pictures is user error ("PEBNAS"?), but I've found a 50mm f/2 on this board to test my hypothesis.

I hope I can be of some help, but I'm most certainly going to be a leech for a while. +)

I'm pretty new here too (and originally from Cincy). You'll learn a lot - I certainly have.
