Hello from eastern Pennsylvania


I'm an amateur photographer who has been a Pentax (film) user for many years. (My favorite cameras are my two Pentax MXs and my Mamiya 6.) And, though I have used a 'digital darkroom' for some time now (scanning my slides), I have just purchased my first digital camera--a Pentax K7.

I own a slew of manual focus lenses that seem to work fine with this camera. (My Voigtlander 58mm Nokton is my favourite on the K7.) However, I just ordered a Pentax 77mm limited. This will be my first autofocus lense. (Perhaps my wife will now quit calling me a 'luddite'.)

I've got to say that the 'cropped' format of the K7 still feels a a bit strange. However, looking at some of the great shots posted on this forum has been encouraging.

Welcome Byrd-2020 Congratulations on the K-7.
Nokton 58 is a great lens isn't it?
I'm sure you'll enjoy the 77 Limited.

Thanks Damn Brit and Eaglem!

I'm settling in nicely with the K7. And, though I've only had it a few days now, the 77mm ltd is an amazing lens.

I'm very impressed by the images posted on this site. This is is going to be fun.
