Hi From Belgium!

Hi All!~

Well where to start? Maybe something about myself? Well let's start there...

I just became a Pentax owner and man I love it so far. I've always used Canon and was satisfied with it (300D, 500D and 50D), that was until a few years ago.
I sold all my gear and focused more on Digital art- and entertainment, mastering all the adobe software and mastering techniques, which I do for a living now.
But the love for taking photos was too great to ignore so I carefully picked out a new camera and ended up with the Pentax K-5.
It's been over 3 years now since I've taken my last pictures, so I'm a little "rusty" at the moment.

.. Woww just wow I'm amazed what this "little" DSLR can do! I'm having tons of fun with it now.
I found this wonderful forum and am eager to join the Pentax user group.

This is currently my equipment (more adding soon, missing flash, nice prime,. ..):
  • Pentax K-5
  • Sigma 8-16 f3.5-5.6
  • Tamron 90mm f2.8
  • Tamron 28-75 f2.8
  • Tenpa 1.36x Viewfinder
  • Matin Enheim 30 Vintage Red Strap
  • K-5 S TYPE Focusing Screen (AF Frame/Grid)
  • Pentax D-BG4 Battery Grip (Chinese)
  • Lowepro Pro Runner 200 AW
  • Seculine Action Level Cross
  • ACMAXX 3.0 Hard LCD Armor

Pictures of my K-5 ( taken with a Canon 1000D, oooh the shame ):

These are the first 2 pictures I took with the K-5:

Well that's about it atm.
And I wish a good day to everyone!

Welcome! Great kit you've assembled, some excellent and interesting lenses and even details such as the S-type screen (I use one too). Rusty or not, you sure have put your PP skills to good use on these first images. Glad to have you with us; enjoy.
