Hello - from Switzerland

Just joined, and am totally unprepared for this, I joined this forum as I've recently bought a K-5, and this forum seems the obvious choice, a font of knowledge... I bought the 100mm f2.8 DFA WR Macro lens as a start as I enjoy discovering the possibilities of macro photography, no doubt I'll add to this at some stage, but at the moment I am at the bottom of the learning curve with this camera. I am very happy with my choice, it's a superb camera, weather sealed too. It feels rock solid and very well made, also the DXO sensor rankings could not be ignored either. I still have my Olympus cameras, digital and film, I'm not sure I could part with them, but I think development in the DSLR department is not a priority there. The K-5 was the one that offered amazing potential at a price I could justify and the lenses on offer, with weather sealing, go to create a formidable package. All in all an exciting time ahead!

hoffe Du genießt das Forum genauso wie ich. Ich habe auch erst kürzlich eine K-r erworben, aber die K-5 steht auf meiner Wunschliste für dieses Jahr noch.

Ich bin aber ein Fan von M42-Linsen und fotografiere zu 80% manuell.

Viel Spaß und freue mich von Dir zu hören.
