New Pentax K-7 User

Hi from Merseyside. In the past I have been a Pentax 35mm user and in my younger days did some freelance work with Weddings, Baby Photos and Sports Events. I was also a member of the Liverpool Photographic Society and enjoyed the companionship of others with like interests. With a family arriving my photography went into decline.

I became interested again in 2001 when Digital Photography arrived and have had several Casio Digital cameras also a recent Canon bridge camera. I found the amount of chromatic aberrations with the bridge camera lens quite painful so decided to return to Pentax SLRs.

So here I am with a Pentax K-7 along with the 18-55 AL Wr Kit lens. I also have a Pentax 55-300mm f/4-5.8 ED in transit. Amongst my old kit I have a SMC Pentax-A 50mm lens and a Vivitar 28-200mm Lens upon which I have modified the rear flange as per Mark Roberts article. There is also a Pentax AF200Sa Flash.

A friend has just visited and left me his aluminium case full of old Pentax Kit, so I will be like a kid in a sweet shop when I get time to look.
