Nice shots Simon.
You mean you are now in Cambodia and shipped out the lens from there?


Are you sure you will not miss the smaller size and weight of Pentax stuff?
Just coming back from a 3 day photo trip, I was surely relieved that I did not suffer as much compared to my friend lugging around his Nikon stuff.

Thanks mate
Lol, no Im still in Brisbane, we have a few temples around here

What lenses did you take on your trip and what did your Nikon friend take?

I dont think I will miss the smaller size, the lenses Im getting arnt much bigger (primes). And Im pretty fit, when Im old it might be a different story lol! I will be replacing the DA15 with the Nikkor 20mm f/2.8 (on FF thats a FOV/DOF of a APS-C 13mm f/1.8) which is ony 57grams more than the DA15

Nice shot!

Thanks.

I took the K5, Sigma 10-20/4.5-5.6, FA35/2 and M85/2
My friend took a D90, 10.5mm fisheye, Tamron 17-50/2.8, 35/1.8, kit 55-300/variable aperture
Of course we also envied the other friend using my G3 with 14/20/45 (loaned to him from me)

It will be a sad day when the rest of those lenses are crossed out mate. I am too gutless to make the jump right now as much as I really want to make a start.

I can sell one k5 and about 7 lenses and still have a decent Pentax system.. I am thinking of that approach right now.
