Hello from the Netherlands

Hi all,

Just joined the forum. I've been eyeing up Pentax for some time, mainly because of the da-limiteds.

I'm jumping ship from Sony, where I have a decent set up comprising a Sony a700, Sigma 10-20/4-5.6, Sigma 30/1.4, Minolta 85/1.4, Tamron 90/2.8 Macro, and Sony's 70-300G (that's the upmarket 70-300mm, not the kit lens).

On my shopping list, I currently have a k7 and the 15/4, 40/2.8, and 70/2.4 da limiteds, as well as a 200/2.8. Those are all one-of-a-kind lenses unique to Pentax, with the exception of the 200/2.8. In Sony-world, you have to hunt down an old Minolta 200/2.8, and they are bright white and draw attention to you, which I wouldn't like.

Welcome to the forum, hope you can get back some decent money for your Sony kit, which you can them spend on Pentax CBA & LBA.

And don't forget the FA Limiteds.
