Hello from Perth WA

Hi there!
I've just swapped from Nikon to pentax yesterday!
I've been using Nikon since 2007 and when i had a play with my friend's K5... i fell so deeply in love with the capabilities of the camera that i traded in my entire Nikon gear for a pentax K5 body.
Now i'm looking for the ever elusive 35mm limited edition lens.
Love the results that this little gem produces!
Anyway, i hope to learn about Pentax as i don't know anything about the brand.
And also to learn more about photography!

Cheers from down under...

Smallfooties.

Welcome; you'll find lots of fellow Aussies here. Hang around and I think you'll find this is a great community and a great place to learn about all things Pentax as well as general photography. I envy you your K-5 ...

Hi smallfooties welcome to Pentax.

Make sure you join the West Australian Pentax group, there are often local Pentax get togethers at various locations.

Welcome mate, from another Perth Aussie.
I also have the 35mm limited - perhaps I could show it to you sometime.

cheers,
Jason

hi guys thanks for the warm welcome!
Jason: I couldn't get my hands on a 35mm! None of the shops i've been to stock pentax limited lens! But i managed to get a 43mm limited. Which is my second preference.
I would love to hear about what you think of the 35mm! I've seen samples from flickr and on this website... and i'm sorely jealous! =p

That's often the case with Pentax lenses... I have bought a couple from a store in the US which usually ends up cheaper too.
Did you just look locally or online too? Feel free to PM me about this stuff if you like

cheers
