Another new MF user...

After a brief hiatus from Pentax (sold my K-5 and lenses last Dec), I'm back in the fold again. Picked up a 645N, 45 FA, 75 FA and 150 FA a couple of weeks ago. Currently running some Velvia 50 and 100, and Provia 400X through the camera. Based on previous film use, I prefer transparencies over negatives for color. Will be looking to try some Neopan Acros 100, TMax and Tri-X in the future.

I've been reading threads here and a few other places, and I think my initial questions have been answered. (I'll probably have a question or three as things progress...) I'm liking the camera so far - transition from SLR/ DSLR was a breeze with the layout of the controls. Love the viewfinder - it seems even bigger and brighter than my D700's. I now have another camera that causes me to when I pick it up.

Will share results (well, decent results anyways) in the pic thread once I start getting film back from developing in a few weeks.

With the increased costs associated with the film, it's going to be a bit lengthier/ leisurely learning curve for me.

But it is enjoyable to use.
