new form Italy

Hello there.
I'm from Italy, north Sardegna!
for long time, since 1985, I was shooting with a Canon AE-1 PROGRAM.. but then I sink it underwater.. so went on Olympus OM-10.. then i decided for a bridge (2006 Lumix-dmcfz5) a great little camera. few months ago I was thinking for an upgrade.. the searching was quite "boring", but this forum helped me out! So I decided for Pentax!!! thank you!.
and now I'm just enthusiast.. I can manage pictures, with the ease of a digital sensor AND enjoy old, MFocusing, manual aperture.. everything manual.. metal and glass lenses ...and it's just great!!
actually I own a k5 camera
and 18-55WR, 50-200WR (worth lenses!) plus a K200mm f/2.5 (solid rock) and a SMC 50mm f/1.7 (beautiful and tiny). also a Kenko mc-7 2x. not sure if I'll be able, but I think i would search for a wide angle.... even if the crop factor doesn't help

being back to completely working on manual (full manual, even the aperture fixing) is really funny. every day I take the camera with me I really enjoy it.
