Howdy from Finger Lakes area of New York State

Hi there, I've just re-energized my Pentax shooting with my first DSLR - a used K100D Super. I picked up a Tamron 28 - 200 and just won a Pentax M50 mm 1.7 on ebay. I've had an old Pentax film camera but used it less and less over the last decade or two. I'm REALLY enjoying the DSLR.

I'm leaving this week for a two week motorcycle vacation around the Great Lakes (around ALL of them) so I should get lot's of time to shoot.

I gotta say what a great site this is.... I've already picked up a lot of great info from you folks. Thanks. I was a bit freaked when I got the new camera but it's not as complicated as it first appeared.
