Newly hatched Pentax owner from Sweden.


I was really into photography a few years ago but was using a compact camera at the time and got to the point where the camera actually limited a lot of my intentions with a photo, especially when it came to landscape.
Decided to pick up photographing again and just recently bought my very first DSLR which happens to be a Pentax K-5. I've got a minor disability which are causing loss of muscles in my hands and I actually thought DSLR were out of reach after testing a Nikon but gave the Pentax a chance and it suits my hands like a glove, really love the size and grip of it.

Only got a Tamron 17-50 for now but will buy a DA* 50-135 as soon as my wallet gives me the green light.

Looking for a camera bag but having a hard time finding a waterproof shoulder bag, need to protect the gear especially during winter time when snowmobiling. Seems like i'll have to settle with a Lowepro Nova which in the end seems to be a very nice bag.
