Hi from Oz and thanks for having me! :)

Hi all,

My name is Keith and I'm a photoholic!

Hopefully a few people may recognise my avatar from a couple of other forums I frequent ... if you do it's nice to be amongst friends as well as new aquaintances.

I do have one lonely Pentax currently ... an SP500 which I've owned since the mid seventies .. it still functions perfectly and has never had a thing done to it in the time I've owned it.

My preference is film though I do shoot digital with an M8 and a D700 for the occasional paid gig ... when I get lucky!

I'm becoming interested in medium format in 6x7 as an addition to my Hasselblad and and Bronica RF645 habit ... the bigger negative is calling my name and I have my sights set on a Pentax 6x7 ... preferably a second or third generation model. The 67ii is definitely at the top of my list but I'm not quite sure that I want to spend that much money and think that maybe I should start off with the earlier model and see how I like the system and if it suits my style of shooting ... that said I can't help returning to the classifieds to ogle the 67ii and seven lens kit currently for sale! (sigh!)

Anyway that's me and my current aspirations ... I hope to be here a lot more regularly in the future ... preferably as a happy P67 user!

Cheers ... Keith

ps ... please feel free to offer me advice and opinions about the 6x7 choices and what to look out for.
