I have been a keen amateur photographer for 40+ years with a little semi-pro work on occasions. Generally, I have favoured Pentax cameras after moving from Prakticaís and still own MX and K1000 bodies. In my life before children I had my own colour darkroom but converted to the digital medium in 2001.

I recently replaced my trusty K10D (should have kept it as a 2nd body) with a K-5, a camera I have been most impressed with, particularly its mid-high ISO, low noise performance. I have a fair selection of old SMC Pentax K-M prime lenses and a couple of modern DA zooms, 18-55 & 55-300mm.

Recently I have started taking sports photographs for my sonís rugby club therefore Iím now saving for a high quality, fast telephoto zoom to replace my SMC Pentax A* f4 300mm prime and DA 55-300mm zoom.
