Hi from northern Australia.

Hi Pentaxians, I live in the far north of Australia, in a little place called Nhulunbuy in NE Arnhem Land.

I am looking to upgrade to either a K5 or K7 from my canon compact, I want to get a 50mm prime as my initial lens and work on my composition and intuition for better shots!

My other passions are Apple Computers, (i own an Apple Reseller Store), espresso coffee, (an Izzo Pompeii Single Group Lever with a La San Marco grinder.), and cycling, ( a heavily customised 29er hard tail with Niner carbon forks, running single speed.)

Cheers, Rick

G'day Rick and welcome from a 'sandgroper' down in Perth
There's a few Aussies in here...

Looking forward to seeing what you can show us from the Top End, it feels like a world away from here.

Welcome to the forum Rick, you won't go wrong if you get the Pentax K-5, I know I'm very happy with mine.
