Yep - another Aussie

Hi all,

Like many others here with many excuses like work, kids and life getting in the way and the rapid demise of film processors, I put down the cameras several years back. Family pics went on with an assortment of small digitals, including a nice little Panasonic DMC-TZ15, but they just didn't cut it.
Recently the kids were were gripping about the same lack lustre shots with their point and shoots, so I dragged out the old K1000 and SFx-N to show them what an SLR is, and explain what can be done with them.
This got the old juices going, and convinced SWMBO that we need a Dslr. Well it's my birthday this wednesday and the DHL consignment tracking says my new K-30 is in the couriers van today. Can't wait for Wednesday!
Thanks to those whom I have pestered with questions already.

Thanks for the welcome.

I don't usually buy much on the net, so when there were no deals in town on Pentax, I found a great deal
at e-global. Can't believe it was in Hong Kong Wednesday afternoon and in my hands Friday.

Welcome to the forum, contrary to Aussie public opinion, this is not actually an Aussie Gentleman's club.

But there's a good few of your countryman hereabouts, once again welcome.
