Greetings from Melbourne

Hi all

I am a very proud new owner of a new Pentax Kx with a Sigma 17-70! Much of the discussion on this site actually swayed me to purchase the Pentax and in the last 2 weeks of ownership I couldn't be happier as even in auto or P mode the camera has taken some cracking shots of my children already The other selling point of the Pentax system was the use of the old lenses as I already had an old zoom that had been sitting around unused from an old SLR.

Your discussions are always very informative and I look forward to learning much more in the coming months and years. I have just finished reading the Bryan Peterson book (Understanding Exposure) and am just making some feeble attempts at shooting in Aperture priority mode - so wish me luck!

Cheers - Kelly in not so sunny Melbourne

There has to be something about the independent and adventurous Aussie personality that has so many of you guys choosing Pentax.

It's really cool, and amazing.

Welcome to the forum Kelly. I am sure you will continue to find it very rewarding.
You have a great combo there, I am more than happy with the same set-up.

Thank you all for your lovely words of welcome. It has been pretty miserable Carl, hopefully better weather on its way soon and I can get the children outside soon (and take the camera with me)!
