Photography been a hobby of mine for quite a while but I've kinda ignored it for a few years. I recently decided that I want to take it more seriously again and also decided that it's time to bite the bullet and get a new SLR. I've been shooting digital for many years now but never had the $$ for an SLR.
After a lot of research I decided to go Pentax. I've had Pentax 35mm film cameras in the past (including a really old Honeywell/Pentax Spotmatic). I've also owned Nikon and Minolta 35mm film SLRs and Olympus and Nikon digital P&S cameras.
Well today I pulled the trigger on a brand new Pentax K-x with the 18-55mm lens.
Looking forward to participating here in the forums including some of the photo challenges!
Welcome spidrman and congrats on the K-x.
You'll find it a very capable little machine for all your photographic needs.
Match it with a fast lens, and you'll be set for ultimate creativity.
Look forward to your photo challenge contributions.
