G'day Mate!

Hi, my name is Bernard, I live in Sydney Australia. My Dad had a Spotmatic years ago and it introduced me to the magic of the Pentax brand. I am using an istDL at the moment that I bought for my daughter. She is 10 and takes slightly better pictures than me with it.

Cheers

Welcome to the forums, those early cameras with CCD sensors produce some very nice images.

Cheers.

Welcome bernard,

Nice clear images you've posted.

Used to live in Sydney, but moved to the New England a few years ago.

Lots of good info on these forums.

Regards, Gary

Hi Patrick and Gary,

Thank you for the kind words. I found the forum when I did some research on what used lens to buy for the istDL. In the end it was between the SMCP A and SMCP FA 50mm 2.8 macro. As the former is manual focus, light weight and one of the last 'old style' lenses we decided it would be the best for learning the ropes for our kid. The informative reviews on this forum clinched the deal.

Cheers

Bernard

Welcome. Some lovely images to open with. Up in Sydney myself last week and took my Pentax for some walks in the evening after work commitments had finished.
