Finland calling, from Melbourne

Hey everyone!

So yes at the moment living in Melbourne but originally (and most probably going back in a years time) from Finland!

I first got here while seeking for another Pentax camera (because my dad has the other in use in Finland) for a reasonable prize! My previous Pentax experience lies mostly with the K100D which is my first DSLR overall. Besides of a nice old Olympus OM2. That then again is totally in it's own cast!

Now I've been thinking of getting a K-7. Any suggestions where to look for a good, not too expensive one? I don't need a lens for that one because one starter 18-55 for Pentax is back in Finland without use.

Trying to get into photographing again after a few months break!

Great to see other finns here too! Don't know about K-7, but I would go for K-5

Welcome to Melbourne. The K-5 is a superior camera to the K-7, but other than being relatively poor at low light, the K-7 is a very fine camera as well. It all depends on what you can afford.
