Default New Pentaxian to the site.

My name is Bob and am new to this site. I started shooting Pentax a while back when the IST DS first came out. I then switched to the K10D amd now shoot with the K5IIS and K01.

Hi Bob, welcome aboard. I have shot Pentax film and digital SLRs since the 1980s. I think you will find a helpful and friendly bunch here, little of the controversy some sites seem to generate. Would love to get my hands on a K-01, tried out one a few years ago and was impressed.

A warm welcome from the Old World. Obviously you are no newcomer to Pentax gear, here you'll be able to share pictures, gear experience and the odd gag with a friendly bunch, just like Ira says.

Welcome Bob. The forum is not as lively as it used to be but that is changing as the new K1 and the mirrorless cameras gain a foothold. Looking forward to some photos from you soon.
