Hi from Australia

Hello forum members.

just registered to the forum today, although have been visiting here on and off for a while now. I've been a Pentax for quite awhile, firstly with a MZ SLR, then istDS and recently purchased a K-5 body when the $300 rebate come in.

I was looking for a K-7 at that time, only to find out it was no longer in production and the K-5 price was a bit expensive. When the rebate come in, bit the bullet and upgraded.

I'm only a novice, but enjoy taking photos - have been getting into macros lately with some interesting results.

Have this week purchased a Manfrotto 190pro tripod, a monopod, Cactus V5 wireless triggers and Sigma EF-530 DG Super flash and looking forward to experimenting with these. I'll post up some photos once i do

cheers Mark

Welcome to the forum Mark. I hope you enjoy your K-5.

Brisbane, and Queensland is a beautiful part of the world, so plenty to photograph where you are.

We will look forward to the images.
