I'm from NSW Australia. I've been taking photos for way too long, starting with a Minolta SR1 (which does rather date me). I moved into DSLR several years ago with a K10D which I really enjoyed, but the siren song of newer technology caught me and I purchased a K30 late last year. I've been absolutely delighted with it, in particular with the focus peaking on the screen which I was quite unsure about (great for macro), and also with the high ISO capabilities. Having started off with "all manual" cameras, I'm comfortable using old manual glass, so over time I've acquired a collection of vintage lenses - mainly Pentax, Vivitar and Tokina. That said , there's still something new I learn about photography every day.
