from San Francisco.

I got into photo very recently. Always had a passing interest in it but after a recent convo w/ a friend, it had me wanting to get serious.

Lots of research later, here I am falling for Pentax design.
Many google searches led me back here so I figure I might as well sign up.

I just picked up a Spotmatic SP1000 today but it's not in the best condition, hopefully I'll be able to clean it up. I'd like an LX though but it's out of my budget right now.

Also looking into either the K-x or K20d...yes the eternal debate but I'm leaning more towards the K20 now.

I'm glad this forum is here and the people seem great.

Go the K20D over the K-x. Welcome to PF.

Welcome to the forum Asudef.
Another vote for the K20D (or K-7 if funds aren't too limited) - the advanced features do have significant value to the astute enthusiast.

Thanks everyone!

I am really enticed by the K20d now. Maybe I'll learn a lot more and actually be able to afford/utilize the nex gen K series with the new high ISO Sony sensor!

I also have a PZ-1P on the way and I'm so excited to shoot with it. Like a film cousin to these awesome K digitals.
