Hello from Switzerland

Hi Everybody,

Glad to be part of the club.

I am the happy owner of a K200D, with 18-55, 50FA1.4, 60-250F4 and a Sigma 18-200 (for my daughter, when she borrows the K200D). Previously I was shooting with an analog Mamiya 645 and these are my first steps into the digital world.

I love my camera and the lenses. Only problem the SDM of the 60-250 failed after 6 months and haven't sent it back for repair yet. I am hoping it comes back to life by miracle. We'll see. I am a bit upset at Pentax, I must say, seen the price of their glass.

Below, a shot taken with the 60-250, and a detailed crop.


Marco, Geneva, Switzerland

Welcome to the forum, hope all turns out with the lens issue, thought that your location might have been Venice with the mask picture.
