Definitely #12. The hands on deck in a quiet tranquil bay with glassy sea screams safe harbor. Technically, it doesn't appear to be highly edited.

I just bought a K70, and am very impressed with it. I wasn't able to buy any of the modern lenses for it, but it's performance is great. Size/weight ratio is interesting; the compact frame is very comfortable for large sized hands. Controls are easily accessible.

I've been a Pentaxian since 1980, I have some awesome 'M' series lenses that I want to use on my K70. Has anyone proceeded me in using this excellent glass on this camera. I learned the basic setup over the weekend, but don't want to miss any of the functionality of the camera. Thank you in advance for any insight!

I have used Pentax since 1980. I have an old ME Super, an LX, as well as an istD and k3II. I also have a Panasonic DMC FZ100, which I must admit has been my crutch since I bought it. It takes excellent pictures in full auto, and that's the problem. I miss the days of using aperture and shutter speed to manipulate the pic to what I want it to say. So, I have dusted off all the old SMC-M lenses and am looking forward to the delivery of the new K3 II. I'm on fixed income now, so the K1 looked like too big an investment for my short life. I'm going to sell the ME, LX and the istD, to recoup some of the price of the K3II.

I shoot primarily landscape, seascape and macro photography. I snapshot family photos, but my sons are scattered all over, so those are rare. My wife and I have been in most of the National Parks from east coast to a line extending from Phoenix north to Yellowstone, so if you need a primer give me a text. It's good to be amongst other Pentaxians!

As an introduction, Ive attached a sunrise shot from our camp. located on Deer Park Lake, an oxbow south of Vidalia, Louisiana. It was taken last Thursday.
