new from Atlanta Georgia

I have been following the Forum for 6 months and with information from the PentaxForums and other web sources I decided to purchase my first DSLR a K2000 with 18-55mm kit lens and a Pentax DA 40mm f/2.8 lens. I have old m42 screw-mount Takumar lens 10 total from 28mm to 500mm. I started with an Asahi Pentax Spotmatic in the early 1970s. In the past I had a very well equipped darkroom and did film and print processing. Now I will learn digital photography and digital post processing, a formidable task. I am pleased to be a member. > Chris >

Welcome to the forum Chris. I'm down by Hartsfield and have been shooting just a little longer than you. Started out with a used SV and bought a new SP II in "72. I'm now using everything from an AP to a K10 but I don't have quite as many Taks.

Welcome Chris.
I'm sure you'll find the transition to digital less daunting than it seems with your background...
Enjoy your time here.
