Hi!

Long time Pentax user (H3!) back in the fold with a shiny new K-30 and a trio of SMC M lenses (28, 50, and 100). Like to work in manual mode, although I do have a DA* 16-50 for when I'm feeling lazy.

Trip to Iceland

Yes, I'll be taking it along with a trio of Pentax SMC M lenses- the 28mm f.2.8, the 50 mm f2.0, and the 100 mm f2.8, and a teleconverter.
The zooms are staying home. (I've done lens tests on all of them and the M's win at every setting.) Wide angle will be covered by my Samsung EX1 (pocket camera) with an equivalent 24mm f1.8 - can't beat that small sensor DOF.

I picked up a 28 mm f2.8 A lens at a garage sale today. Hope to try it out tomorrow.
