Film to Digital SLR

After several years of thinking about it I have decided it is time to move from my film based Konica SLR to digital. Having several lenses for my Konica is one thing that kept me from changing, but since Konica is no longer around; I can't trade it off; 35mm is getting harder to come by; digital cost nothing to process; and I want more options than digital point and shots I decided it is time to get a digital SLR.

I decided on the Pentax K-x because of the 12mp, and also the AA battery power. Having traveled world wide, I know I can always find AA batteries. However, you may not always have a method to recharge or replace proprietary batteries. So for the cost of a 10mp Canon or Minolta with 18-55 & 50-200 lens at Costco, I found the K-x on eBay from Beach. It is suppose to be delivered today.

So I joined this sight to get ideas, reviews of lenses, and have discovered one postng on converting my Konica lenses to the K-x. So if I can't find a buyer for my old Konica I will try to convert the lenses!
