My name is John and I'm a Pentax virgin so please be gentle start this hobby probably like a lot of oldies with a Praktica LT in the 70s, over the years I've used several makes but mainly Minolta, since digital I've been with Nikon (D70, D300, D3) but fell out with them over a problem they wouldn't help with, I then adopted Sony with their wonderful A900 followed by an A77, no problems with Sony at all but I just fancied a change, been tempted several times to give Pentax a try but they never "felt" right in my hands until I picked up a K3 and it was love at first sight, it felt great and is a thing of beauty lol, so I ended up getting one in gunmetal finish, I prefer to use older lenses and there are so many out there to try I also own a couple of smaller cameras, Samsung NX300 and a Contax TVS Digital. Over the last few years my health has suffered and I'm now disabled so at this time of year I tend to semi hibernate I do try and get out now and again when the weather suits but I really really can't wait for springtime lol. Anyway I'm off now to research bits here on the forum.
Regards
John

Welcome John,

Quite a few of us on here are looking forward to spring and getting to grips with new K3's now they can be had new for little over half the original price.

Hi John

Welcome to the forum - being stuck in the house is no excuse to not play with your new toy - still life, macro, abstract - plenty to go at until the rain stops

No matter how many lenses I have owned - I have always needed just one more

Lol no we have 8 of them 5 reds and 3 greys.
Thank you all for the welcome, I can see already how friendly it is and I'm looking forward to learning a lot about Pentax heritage, can anyone suggest any "decent" books covering say roughly from the 60s through to the 80s
Thanks
John
