Hellooo All!!!

Hi everyone,

I am a Pentax newbie. I started off with Nikon film gear and when I switched to digital I went with a D90. I have since sold off my Nikon digital gear (kept my film gear for sentimental reasons) and have switched to Pentax for Digital. I am still in school, money is tight, and Pentax seems to be a great system for photographers on a budget. This was not the only reason I switched. I worked part time in a camera store that sold Pentax. Though there was very little there I really liked what I used. Every day I played with the lonesome K20D and 18-55 until one day I decided to buy them. Though the K20D may lack in some areas compared to the D90 it more than makes up for it in features, ergonomics, and robustness. I have not regretted my choice one bit! My sister has asked that I photograph her wedding in a year and I have made it my goal this year to build myself a small system (on a tight budget of course) and improve upon my skills as a photographer so that I may provide her and my soon to be brother in law with the best photographic memories I can. This site is a blessing for Pentax newbies like me and I want to thank all who may help me in adavance and offer my advice, experiences, and photographs to all those who inhabit this site. Thank you again and hellooo!!!!!
