Merry Christmas from Norway

Hello all Pentax Friends,
Wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy (full format) Year

I recently bought the HD version of the 15mm prime - and this lense is really fun to use.

Da 40

December is so far very mild in southern Norway. However ice can be found - here with my DA 40 and K3.
This a light outfit and easy to bring :-)

Both of these reviews led to lens purchases for me. I tend to spend a lot of time agonizing over making the right decision on lens, so these reviews gave me a lot of confidence in making some hard decisions.

I am a regular visitor to Pentax Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database
I have picked up several very nice old manual lenses for a song, and have not picked up several because of these reviews. I will be adding my own as further test these.

Comprehensive Pentax P-TTL Flash Guide Updated - Articles and Tips |

I was in the market for a flash attachment and didn't know anything about through-the-lens metering. Took it for granted on my Canon AE-1, and relied on it without knowing how it worked. Understanding the difference between that level of technology and that used by Pentax' P-TTL system was really important.

There is a lot of really helpful information on this website. I like the user reviews of the lenses a lot, they really help the decision process.

The Pentax K-3 in-depth review was quite helpful because of it's added value compared to more regular camera reviews. E.g. the comparisons between other Pentax cameras, the new features compared to older models and the overall comprehensiveness of the review that made it really useful for me when I considered upgrading from a K-5 to my K-3. Pentax K-3 Review - Introduction | Reviews Excellent work PF, highly appreciated .

You can find nikon/canon flash guides basically everywere but to my knowledge this is the only Pentax flash guide, and a good one at that: Comprehensive Pentax P-TTL Flash Guide Updated - Articles and Tips |
I mention it second because it's already mentioned by other forum members and I discovered it after my flash purchase.

For me the most helpful was the review of the K-S1.

That got me on this forum in the first place and was the final push to actually get the camera as well
