Another Newbie =D

Hey pentaxforums,

Been here few times reading alot of useful infomation regarding . Just never made time to make an account. All the way from Australia, WA.

Anyways pretty newbie to photography. I've been using my mum's Pentax MZ-60. Bought myself a Lumix TZ-10 about a year ago when it came out. But before that I was playing around with my gf's K-m that I got her using the lens that I was using for the MZ-60.

Always been fan of Pentax and always wanted the K-7 but had no money for it. Earilier this year I finally got myself the K-7. I went for the K-7 because K-5 was coming out making the price drop. I picked it because of it WR and lens I already had lying around.

It was hard worrying about the little drizzle of rain when I was shooting car at a local drift event with the k-m. Always had to stuff it back in the bag.

Welcome here mate.
There are lots of us Aussies on the forum.
The K-7 certainly has a more solid feel and balances well with heavier lenses.
You'll find it a joy to shoot with for years to come.
Enjoy it here, hope you continue to find it useful.

There's darned few of us from the Arctic. As to WR, been shooting in all kinds of weather and never had a problem except for batteries draining a lot faster than more seasonable comes. Welcome!
