Hi from Sydney Australia

Though not really a serious photographer, I started ages ago with a Kodak box brownie. (wish I still had it because it was probably the most reliable camera ever built!).

My first real camera however was a Cosina CS1 - I couldn't afford a real Pentax at that time and the Cosina was great value for the money.
Finally a real Pentax - a Z20 which I still use.
Also had a few small/medium digitals but finally convinced she-who-must-be-obeyed to allow me to get a K-R .... "yes dear I CAN use all those old lenses with it..."

I like taking land and sea scape photos and have begun playing around with macro photography. Also have an old telescope so one day - er night will see what I can do with that. A 2000mm f10 has got to be good for something!

I look forward to being part of this forum
