Hello from beautiful North Jersey

My love of photography has lasted for decades. Years ago I used a Pentax SLR.
I tried a point and shoot digital camera but am ready to purchase a DSLR.
I thrilled to find this forum for sharing information.

Welcome!
This is a great forum for BOTH Pentax and photography in general.

Was surprised to see the Hello from good old NJ. Usually the intros are from places like the Costa Del Sol or islands off the coast of Scotland or from some place where they have winter when we have 90 degree heat and humidity.
I live further south now but I grew up (?) in North Jersey. Since you said "beautiful" I am guessing it is Essex or Bergen and not Hudson. Oh boy, am I in trouble now!
Anyway, welcome, read, ask, comment and learn.
These people are not simple "fans", they really know photography and Pentax in particular.

Among my past cameras is a still occasionally used MX and my new pride and joy a recently acquired K200D. GREAT camera (don't tell anybody)

Actually I live in Sussex County just northwest of Bergen and Essex.

I am trying to decide between a Canon Rebel XS or a Pentax k200D.
I do have 20 year old lens which would fit a pentax body.

This forum is a great place to learn.

Why I like the K200D - Weather sealing; uses AA batteries (Eneloop preferred);
can use any Pentax mount lens and it will have anti-shake - it is in the body.
Let us know what you decide on finally, OK?
