Hi, the forum suggested me to introduce myself, so here I am.

I've been taking photographs with a bridge camera for 4 or 5 years (a Canon G9, before that I had the Panasonic Lumix FZ1), and this Christmas I decided that I was ready to take the jump to the DSLR. So after a lot of research, I asked Santa for a Pentax K-30, which I've been loving so far, but I'm still learning to use it and get into it: It's a whole different world from what I used before, but also is a lot more fun.

Right now I have the 18-55 kit lens, plus the Pentax 55-300 Tele. I also picked up a flash (the Pentax AF360), so I'm full packed and have a lot to play with (first time I use an external flash, and the difference is huge -finally the flash is not useless- there are a lot of controls I haven't learned yet).

So here I am, this place has already helped me with a lot for my buying decisions, and helped me a lot to learn about my shiny new camera, so I already love this forum.

My next step is probably to get some extension tubes, as I love Macro photography, but I already spent enough money for the rest of the year, so a macro lens is out of the question

Thanks guys! BTW, as it seems it's a common thing (and polite) to mention where we are from, I forgot to mention: I live in Spain.
