Hello, new member.

Hello,

Basically Iíve been doing Google research on Pentax stuff and this place keeps appearing.

I figured I may as well join and see what itís all about.


Anyway, Iím not a great photographer by any stretch, but itís something I enjoy and enjoy trying to perfect.

At the moment my kit consists of:

Pentax *istDS (flash broken, is fussy with batteries)
Pentax ME (freshy off ebay a few days ago, I enjoyed the SP but wanted K mount)
Pentax SP1000 (Belongs to my GF actually, it was her dadís)
Sigma 18-50mm (focus creeps)
Pentax-A 70-210mm (Borrowing from dad)
Pentax-A 50mm F2
Unknown 135mm M42 mount
M42 2x converter
Monopod
A couple of tripods
Tiny tripod, which I tend to use as an extender for the Monopod.


Most of my prior photos have been motorsport photography, Iím involved in the car scene, and used to live near a racetrack, it was destined to happen.

Iím getting more into general photography now, practicing getting my eye into it (my composition skills are shithouse)

So, yeah.
Thatís about it.


When it comes out Iíll be looking at buying a K30 to replace the *ist that seems to slowly be having more and more issues.

Pretty much.

I learned the basics on dad's Super-A and SFX.

And the istDS I bought off him when he upgraded (I think to a K20d? not sure, he's had a couple)



I've mainly stuck with it because I can share lenses, and can save money buy buying old lenses for stuff all
