Long time reader, first time poster.


Saggsy from Melbourne here.

I've been reading this forum for probably over a year now and have learned soooo much from you guys. Thank you. I find with the knowledge and experience and immense talent on here, I don't have much to contribute, but every day I learn.

I began (photography) life with the k-x, my life lovely girlfriend sent me on a beginners evening course, and now I'm hooked. I now have a k-5 paired with the 18-55 kit lens, a sigma 70-300 and a sigma 50 1.4. So some more basic lenses, which cover most of the bases, and I'm getting better results every time shoot.

I'm looking to take the next step up. The da 15mm limited and the fa 77 limited are in my sights. I'd probably have both right now if Pentax hadn't changed their us pricing policy, lenses are a touch overpriced comparitively in Aus.

Welcome to forum.

Coming out of the darkroom is always tough when you have lurked there awhile.
