Hi from Roodepoort South Africa

Been a registered member on this site for sometime but noticed that there are only 19 South African members, so make me the 20th! Been a Pentax fan from day one since my father bought his first SLR Spotmatic. My first Pentax was a MX witched I loved to pieces. Followed by MZ50. My first digital was the K10 but grew legs one night. Fortunately the lenses and flash did not follow it! Now I enjoy my K20 but o boy, lenses are so expensive in South Africa!
When I was younger I did a great deal of B/W wedding and newspaper photography until VHS sort of stopped the photography business. With the arrival of cellular phones with built-in cameras a new photographical period started and my interest in photography was renewed. I love wildlife, nature and close-up photography but battle with flash, one day I will get it right again! The beauty of digital is that you do not have to worry about the number of shots you take; no development cost involved!

Welcome! I thought were more members- maybe not all of them are indicating it in their profile?

In any case, I'm sure you've already found the SA user group. Enjoy the forum!
