Was just made aware of this site by a fellow Pentaxian who also frequents the Stargazer's Lounge site (another hobby of mine).

Switched from Canon in the mid-90s (ZX-5, which I still have) and then kind of gave up on photography about 10 years ago, not wanting to learn about digital imaging. Finally gave in for a K-5, October 2011, and now my wife (K-50) and I both enjoy shooting, again.

Hope to learn from the store of information I'm sure exists here.

Welcome! I was in your neck of the woods this time last year. Wish I was again right now!

Thanks, Neil.

Thanks, Gwyn.
Perhaps another visit lies in your future, there are worse places to be.

Welcome, Welcome, and thrice Welcome. All people from the colonies are welcome here.
I did some work in L.A. and City Of Industry some years back. How far are you from them.
Born again biker with lots of Pentax bits. Every day I wake up is a good day. I'm so old I don't even buy green bananas.

Vic & Andrew,

Thank you for the welcome.
Vic, I'm southeast of there, probably a 50-mile drive, or so. On the eastern side of the Santa Ana mountains.

......and welcome from North Yorkshire. Stick around - we may not be the largest group in the world - but you will not find a friendlier one.

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