There are other Pentax freaks in the world!

Hi, I'm Audrey, from lots of places, live in Georgia, and I'm addicted to Pentax. {Hi Audrey} I first noticed I had a problem when I started shopping for a DSLR to use in addition to my film camera. My hands just started shaking everytime I picked up a Nokia. A slight twitch developed underneath my right eye every time someone said "buy a Canon!" Many hours of research later, when the police had stopped questioning people, I bought a k10D. I won't say it has helped me overcome my fear of technology, but I will say that it has helped to pave that path for me.

Welcome to the forum... but fair warning: this place might turn your shaking and twitches at the mention of Nikon and Canon into outright convulsions over LBA (lens buying addiction)!

G'day Georgia.
No shortage of Pentax freaks, die-hard loyslists, eccentrics and enthusiasts here.
You're in good company.
Look forward to your contributions.
