Hello to all

Hi to all forum members.

Great to get behind a camera again. Recently purchased a K-x after nearly 20 years away from looking through a camera eyepiece. Previous had a Rhico SLR which got stolen together with lots of kit.

I live in central Scotland so have the world at my feet, great for landscapes, although I do have a interest in close up and macro photography.

I enjoy collecting vintage lenses, mostly Vivitars, which seem to have that magic quality that some modern lenses seem to have lost. Thank goodness for ebay.

Close to retiring which I am looking forward to. More time to travel and shoot.

Best regards to all.

Welcome! That's one reason I chose Pentax, the ability to use old vintage lenses with brand new bodies. Be sure to take some time and explore as much as you can of this website. Enjoy!
