Hello Everyone.

My story in short. I'm an old minolta B&W film guy who gave up shooting years ago. Bought a compact zoom a year ago and the bug bit again. Was saving up for a canon 40d or nikon d90 and all of a sudden I saw the specs on the K-X so I waited impatiently for it to arrive at BH and grabbedit as soon as it became available.. I'm sooooo happy with it Love all the old lenses available. Something about them make me smile. Now I need to unload my old Rokkor stuff and I'm set.
What a great and informative site you have here!!!

Hello pentax enthusiasts. My name is Edward, have been interested in photography ever since 1957 when i emmigrated to Edmonton Alberta Canada. It was that time i got my first Exacta 35mm camera, with the 50mm f2.8 Tessar lens, which i kept for over 26 years...In was in 1984 that i got my first pentax KM 1000 and a couple of M-series lenses, my passion is monochrome, still use my dark room for developing negatives, and printing and sepia toning. I am not as prolific as i use to be, but still enjoy taking monochrome, and infrared photography, i also like to use my Mamiya 6x7 rangefinder as well, there is something about a 6x7 negative that as always appealed to me, especially monochrome infrared...A lot of people regard me as a dinosaur, I suppose they are right, it's hard to make the change to digital, i have recently got a K20D to play around with, I can hear all the digital photographers saying,,,what in the world is Edward doing, messing about in all that chemistry, making masks, and dodging tools, burning, and holding...swapping enlarger lenses, changing different negative format holders...but i will persevere with my K 20, and probably do a lot of deleting. well i will say cheerio for now, at least you know i little about me. kind regards Edward.
