Introducing myself

Hello everyone,I hail from Brisbane,Australia.I've been into photography since my teenage years,started off with pentax mg and me super.Only
recently got into digital.One frustrating thing over here,most people own one of two brands of camera.Pentax does not get much of a look-in in
most camera stores around Brisbane and some people scratch their heads wondering what camera am I using.

Welcome, always good to get more Aussies here. I keep hearing rumours (Actually told to me by store staff) that Harvey Norman are supposed to be getting Pentax but I've yet to see physical evidence. The main JB Hi Fi in Melbourne carried a little bit of Pentax stuff but most was order only.

I saw in a Big W store the other day a Kx so if I'm correct and Big W is part of Dick smith then perhaps you might see Pentax at DS in the new year.

Welcome to the forum. The good thing about Pentax here in Aus is that we're kind of unique. Everyone else is Holden/Ford, we're the hotted up Subaru.
