While doing some research on a new telephoto for my new K-7 I happened on this site and after spending many hours reading review and such I realized I need to join the site.
I am not new to Pentax. In 1965 while in my last year of a BSc I got a student loan to buy my first SLR - a Pentax 1a I think. And for 46 years I've been a Pentax user. In 05 I got a istD and love the digital world. I had wanted a K-7 for some time and after the K-5 was announcement the K-7 have been avalable for a good price.
I have to thank all those who have posted the reviews of the lens's. I'm upgrading to the weather resistant lens and have ordered the 55-300 based on the reviews . I hope to pick up a DA* 300 to expand my interest in Birds photography.
I'm retired from a carreer in Computer Management at various locations in Canada. I now live near Vancouver on the west coast of Canada.
My wife and I enjoy travel and we are planning to visit South America via a Holland America Cruise.
