Hi from the Sunny Coast

Just like to say hi from the Sunshine Coast in Australia. I've been a long term Pentax user starting with a ME Super I bought new in 1981 and put away in 2003 after many thousands of happy memories, to play with movie and digital compacts. Needless to say I found compacts just didn't do it for me, and although I still like movie, I really missed SLRs. So I bought a new Kr and a few new Pentax DA lenses. Must say although I don't like the plastic build of modern lenses the image quality is superb. I can also still use my old Pentax and Tamron lenses so I'm a happy user again. I found that my new Kr will supply most of my movie needs so I can now put down that Canon movie camera. Oh yes the ME Super still works, I intend to get it serviced and use it again.

Indeed the awful thing is, seeing it every day, I always want to go elsewhere to take photos! And thanks for the welcome, I've been lurking for a while, and picking up tips for my new gear, but there seems to be a lot of nice people here.

Ah Toowoomba, I was up there for a conference a couple of weeks ago, nice place but already getting cold even in May. Good photo spots around there also.

Welcome mate. I've got lots of family on the sunny coast. Enjoy your K-r.
My camera story is quite similar having grown up with an MG and now enjoying my lovely K-x

Yes, not all that well known, this town of mine, apart from the Carnival of Flowers in September - but lots of things and places to photograph. Anyway, you've luckily missed out on all the wetter and colder weather we're experiencing at the moment.
