Happy greetings from Yorkshire


I'm not a Pentax owner..... sorry.

I'm from Yorkshire, England though currently in Cornwall for another week or so. I'm hoping to get back into photography and have become quite a frequent visitor here. I have been researching, debating , umming and arrring about what camera I should start with for quite a few weeks. I have managed to actually get hold of some cameras and must say that the Pentax have appealed to me the most. I did try out a K7 in a shop and it felt just very nice to hold, if a little on the heavy side, but certainly solidly built. So now I am looking for a good K5 or a K-r but probably the K5... oh, I'm getting closer to being a Pentax owner.

Anyway, hello everyone and thanks for having a wonderful and informative site.

Welcome to the Forums. Sarah
When you get your camera be sure to post some photo's. Have you considered the K-30 It is lightweight but still sturdy. What do you plan on shooting?

Thanks Patrick. I have considered the K-30, but the K-5 is more appealing, though I would not rule it out... decisions, decision. I plan on mainly photographing landscape & nature, festivals and street are my primary areas to start with. I will gladly post some pics when the time comes : )
