Going Pentax

Hi all,

I recently bought my first DSLR, and I went with the white Pentax K-x. I'm truly loving it! My cat has been my main test subject... good thing he loves me. I've been out with it couple times, although I've been afraid to take it with me to the horse farm and the Army. I've gotten some great shots already, a few of which I'll post in the "Best K-x shots" thread. I'm quite impressed with the kit lens, btw.

I'm completely sold on Pentax!

- Cass

Thanks, guys! I was happy to find a Pentax community. I went to the Home & Garden show this past Friday to photograph flowers, and my white K-x got a lot of attention! I'm anxiously awaiting the Pentax m42 adapter's arrival today so that I can use my 50mm f/1.4.

Thanks for the link, Peter. POTW threads are fun!

I did the same (M42 adapter) to use my SMC Tak 50/1.4, but it didn't cut the mustard! Ended up buying an A series 50/1.4. Exposure is now automatic - I just have to focus!
