New to Forum - not to Pentax

Hi All!
i have been shooting Pentax since i bought my PZ-1 back in the 90s. got fed up with film after an expensive trip to Belize in 2005 (expensive in terms of film & processing cost + scanning to CD - rest was quite reasonable).

not an early adopter (obviously), i bought a pentax 43wr (waterproof P&S) & later a canon s5IS, while watching the market and technology improvements, but pressure eventually built up for 'real' camera, and i sprung for a K20D a little over a year ago.

now, after buying only a sigma 10-20 to make up for the crop factor, and using my old lenses with a couple of problems, i've got a serious case of LBA and have been trolling around on ebay constantly. got some real good deals - will update profile, and share thoughts later on.

actually, i'm not that new to the forum. i have been lurking here, reading, searching, and learning for 2-3 years. joined for access to the marketplace since my LBA is so bad! not really - i have some info to share as, well. hope i can help someone someday, like i've been helped many times.

it's sunny here (for once), so i gotta get off the computer, and get outside with the 3 lenses and one TC i got in the last week!

more later...
