Hello From Australia

Hello everyone,
I am new to this and Live in Melbourne, Australia. The weather here today is overcast with drizzle rain. We are in Spring and for the first time in 10 years it looks like we might be finally coming out of drought!
I am married, have 3 children and have been taking photographs for as long as i can remember.

I have been using Pentax for as long as I can remember, right back to my Mz-60 if not further.

Hope you have a great day

All the best
( L J )

Welcome to the forum. I think this is the most well-informed Pentax website out there. Be sure to explore all you can because there is a lot of useful information all over this website.

Welcome from Camberwell. It may be drizzling and cold today, but yesterday was great and it looks like an even better weekend coming up.

Welcome from another Melbournite. I think there are a lot of Australians on this forum, so many I keep expecting to see a Pentax around everyones neck in Melbourne. Sadly that's not quite the case yet.

Enjoy your new camera I have 3 kids too and bought a K-x last year, and for the first time have great pictures of them (OK, "great" might be a relative term, I mean "great" compared to my old non-dSLR cameras).

I'm from Perth and discovered this site while looking for a new lens hood for my FA 50mm F1.4, my favourite lens. I hope the lens will be back from the shop next week. I dropped it while on holiday and broke the electronics (I nearly cried!). I had to finish the trip with no autofocus or metering, and only manual aperture control. What an experience!

I've only got 1 (kid) so far but it is so true, i am a complete novice but already love the photos I'm getting of my toddler, Pixie photo , you will never see me again.

Hi Liza Jayne welcome from another Melburnian, this is a great forum, a true bonus of having bought a Pentax.
