Well, thanks to a lot of great advice from the fine folks on this forum, and thanks to some good friends who helped with the $$, I am now the proud owner of a new K-m, and a used Tamron 18-250. Another kind friend is buying me the adapter to let me use screw-mount lenses - still have one or twofrom thegood oldfilm slr days.She is also is buying me a Raynox DCR 150 for my Canon Powershot S3 - wonder how/if that will work on the Pentax??.

I took the Pentax out on a short trail yesterday, between the spring showers, just to try things out. Almost as much fun as my old Praktica Nova!!

Would sure appreciate any advice you can give me to help improve from my first shots. Here are a few samples:

Only thing I can say is welcome and keep up what you are doing. You aren't a stranger to photography that is for sure. That first photo with the soft water fall was a dead give away. Looking good my friend. Hope to see more soon.

hi mole

the dcr150 should work without any problems with your tamron 18-250, don't have the 18-250 but it works fine with the 18-200.

welcome and a great start of pictures

Welcome to the forum Mole! Nice work with this camera. As Dawg remarked, you seem to be no stranger to the business. I like the close ups of the flora: #2 in particular shows great composition and nice color and sharpness!
