Finally taken the Digital SLR plunge...

I've been a happy user of Pentax since I was a kid when my Dad let me use his Spotmatic if I promised to be very careful with it.

I have my Dad's camera (which he let me have for college photo courses), an extra Spotmatic donor body and a PZ-20 with which I have been very happy.

Digitally, I've been fooling around with a point 'n shoot Panasonic Lumix (A nice little camera!) but have wanted a Pentax DSLR so I can use my many lenses and accessories. Since I had a little windfall recently, I took the plunge and bought a Pentax K-x a couple weeks back. I thought about the K-7, but the windfall wasn't that big!

Since that time I've had many questions and keep winding up here when I do a 'net search for answers. So I figured it was only polite to join in and introduce myself.

To give you a clue about how much of a geek I am I can tell you this:
On a recent episode of a TV show, one character brought out his tripod-mounted camera to take a group picture using a self-timer. I was in the kitchen at the time, but HAD to pop into the living room to confirm that yes, the distinctive timer buzz WAS from a Spotmatic.

I can tell more about and Care more about in many cases, the cameras I see people using in movies.

Welcome aboard.
