Hello fellow members and pentax shooters,

My name is mark , 29 years old and living in holland.
First shooting my pics with my minolta af 7000, suffering from costly
developing, decided do go digital and bought the olympus e-520. Not really
happy with this camera, and seeing pics shot with the k10d wich pleased my eye, it
didn't took me long to sell te olympus and bought the k10d. Although the first one sufferd
waterdamage during a windsurfingcontest shooting. I sended it to the pentax repaircenter but
It got lost in de mail somewhere. Luckely insurance covered the loss and a new one i got as a

I really like the simplicity of this camera, combined with the 18-250mm zoom its also very versatile.
Shooting portrait to wildlife and landscape this set accompanies me everywhere, be it in the backyard or
trekking trough the himalayas. For wildlife i'm practically always at full focal length, so another lens might be
of good value (300mm f4 has good reviews) . Would be my first lens with fixed focal length but i think i woud'nt regret
buying it.

Meet you guys on the forum...

Regards mark
