Hello from Finland!

Hi All

I'm a long-time Pentax owner and American living abroad. My first Pentax was an ME Super which I still have. I currently also have a ZX-5n film SLR and I just bought a new K-5 with 18-55 WR, which is my first DSLR. I've been using a Canon G9 for several years (great small-ish travel camera) and finally decided to get back into SLR photography which I have been away from since the digital era began. I have been into photography since I was about 10, when I started learning to use my dad's SLR back in the late 70's. I travel a lot internationally and almost always have a camera with me. I'm an advanced amateur and know how to get good results. I've started reading the lens reviews here and am looking for my first lens upgrade even though I've had my K-5 for exactly one week today.

Love lingonberries, but blood pancakes... no thanks! My wife (she's Finnish) tries to get me to eat blood sausage, but that's a pass for me too. Kossu and salmiakkikossu are good. And reindeer.
