Greetings from Switzerland

Dear Colleagues,

While I'm very new to this forum, I'm probably an" old hand in matters Pentax".

Since 1984, I'm the happy owner of an LX SLR (still working, BTW !) with a dedicated underwater housing for various lenses, from 18mm wide angle to 50 & 100 mm macros, a 24 - 48 mm wide-zoom and - for dry use only - an 70-210 mm Sigma zoom...and some "sort of relict" an 500mm mirror-lens tele from Tamron.

Since only a few weeks I own a K10D, and I'm currently looking for a suitable tele-(zoom) lens for birding & wildlife photography, to replace above mirror-lens, which sadly is below expectations (dirty, and old and can't be repaired at a reasonable cost)

Actually, I'm evaluating a conventional tele-zoom - e.g in the 100-500 range vs a telescope/ spectice (Digiscoping) setup. (somewhere in the 1000 mm range would be very nice - but just to costly, Im afraid...!!!)

Regards from the Swiss Greater Zürich area

Grüzi in die Schweiz,

es werden täglich immer mehr Mitglieder aus Europa. Ich bin selber erst einige Tage hier, da ich auch erst seit kurzem wieder eine Pentax - Kamera habe.

Aber die Leidenschaft für diese Marke und Kamera ist größer denn je.

Viel Spaß im Forum!
