Good evening from Sydney

Hello everyone,

<stand-up> My name is Calin and I am a Pentaxian. <sit-down>

I look forward to meaningful discussions on photography & pentax gear. I am fairly new to the dSLR world (started Oct 2009), although I have been an avid photographer for a very long time. (non-SLR)

I spent over 2 months back in Oct 2009 considering wether I buy a Canon 500D or a Nikon D90. It was a close call and might have went with the Canon 500D however an article in dpReview prompted me to read more about this camera, a Pentax K-x. The rest as "they" say is "history" and not for a second since have I thought about my decision to take on the wonderful world of Pentax.

Hope to hear from your experience deciding to become a Pentaxian and see some of your photography.

Welcome! You made a good choice in the Kx. I had a similar decision for my first ever DLSR about a year back and also have not looked back. This forum has been a big help in making me a more well rounded photographer. There is useful info all over so be sure to take some time and explore as much as you can and ask questions. Enjoy!
