back to Pentax

In 1974 (!) I bought my first SLR, an Asahi Pentax SP-1000. I used this camera until 1989 when I switched to Minolta Autofocus.
Since then I have been using Minolta DSLR and Sony DSLR. The new Sony's with the EVP made me switch back to Pentax.

I just bought a K-5 with the 18-135mm kitlens, a 35mm/2,4 and a Tamron 10-24.

The K-5 is a camea I have to get used to, but I have enough spare time.
I retired from the RNLAF a few years ago and spend my time travelling and as a volunteer doing guided tours in German and English language in a nearby 'polder'-museum.

I like my pictures with a minimum of post-processing and use Lightroom 3.6 on an old macmini.
Hope to learn a lot on this forum

Welcome to the K5 Bert - fantastic camera indeed (I have two and would buy a third tomorrow if I really needed it).
