New DSLR user from South Africa

Hello! Everyone

Greetings from South Africa. After playing around with point&shoots for 2 years, I just recently bought a K-7 as my first DSLR camera. Brilliant camera BTW.

I don't think there are a lot of Pentax users in South Africa, so I hope i can get a lot of tips and help here. If there are any forum members from SA, come and say HI! - Kevin

Welcome, Kevin.

Do a search and find our member LensScribe from South Africa:

A hell of a great photographer, and a cool person.

Welcome to the forum, I hope you had your new camera in time to catch some of the atmosphere of your countries recently fantastically well hosted World Cup football events.

Thanks for the warm welcome!

I did manage to take some photos during the World Cup, but mostly on my point-and-shoots. I will post them soon.

Welcome! It's always nice to see another South African about, we're quite scarce around these parts. You've come to the right place, this is definitely the best Pentax resource on the net. Looking forward to seeing some of your pics!

Ira, thanks for your excessively kind words
