Icelandic hello from Denmark!


I just bought the K-5 with an 18-55 WR lens and in the excitement I joined this forum.
The K-5 is an upgrade from *ist DS (2005) which was an upgrade from a MX I inherited in 1993 alongside 4 Pentax-M lenses, namely the 28mm F2.8, 50mm F1.7, 100mm F2.8, 200mm F4 and a Sigma 600mm mirror lens, 2x teleconverter and bunch of other stuff.
I hope the knowledge in here will improve my advanced-amateur photographic skill!

Welcome to the forums, nice to be able to use those older lenses on a new body.

Welcome to the forum, and your K-5, Njall. I hope you enjoy both as much as I have.
