Tada, a Dutch guy joins in

Hi all,

I'm Eric and I live in the green heart of Holland, shooting my pictures with Pentax camera's for the last two years.

Over 30 years ago my first SLR was a Ricoh with a Tokina 35-105 and a Pentax-M 200mm, which I still have now.
I now own a Pentax K-r and a K20D, today I'll trade in my K20D for a K30, mainly for the high ISO performance
What I like to shoot is sports, my kids are active with speed skating and table tennis.
I also try to capture images with a little twist or humor, but that isn't easy.

I looked at this site a lot, comparing lenses and sometimes figuring out what the right price would be.
At the moment I am happy to own a Pentax 16-45, 55-300, 200-M, 400-M and today I'll add a 50-135, my first SDM lens.
My most treasured lens is probably a Tamron 90mm macro and I do very much like my Tamron 28-75 lens.

Thanks for the welcome, I recognize both names from the Dutch forum.
I have just collected my K30 and 50-135 and is an awesome combination.
Hope to show you some results later...
