(Pentax) Pimpin ain't easy.

Seems as though we have a few folks that like the dark side. So how many Pentax users do we have on this forum? Would seem obvious I am a diehard Pentaxian. So stand and be counted!!!

You can be the second. I also shoot Pentax film but with a K1000. Digital is a K10D. I've got a few more Pentax film bodies but don't use them much.

I use a Pentax! It's my first ever DSLR. Got it about 8 months ago and I love it! Pentax k-x, by the way.

I've got a K1000 myself, but I haven't used it for a long time. It sits with the rest of my other cameras on display in my house

Looking over the Photography section it appears we have a few more Pentaxians here.

Heres my Pentax Honeywell SP1000 I usually use when I shoot film. I scooped up a 28mm wide angle with the m 42 mount for $10 at a local photography store. Lucky find for me!

I've been using my Pentax K10D for several years now and my dad used it for a few years before that. I really like it Now if only I could afford a f/2.8 55-200mm lens for it... Lol.

I am a new Proud Pentax owner. I love my K30. I checked out the the Big 2 I liked the nikon but when I took a few photos with the K30 I was sold. It just fit me like a glove Everything about the camera made sense to me.

I was just wondering if there were others. They are under rated for sure. I am such a fan I am on a Pentax forum now.

I just picked up a Weather resistant 50-200mm its in the mail. It was $184 free shipping on thee Bay. I love using my old manual lenes for the camera. My old 50mm is a nice glass.
