Hi from Sydney :D

Hello Pentax forums,

I'm pretty new to forums thing so I may be very immature or posting on wrong forums, anyway I'm a student from Sydney I've no luck lately trying to buy my first SLR camera and a friend told me to have a look here. So I made an account and hoping to make new friends too

Hello from another Sydneysider!
You'll find there seems to be heaps of Australians here.

Also check out the Sydney Pentax Users Club hereabouts.

Welcome to the forum, there's heaps of Aussies in here, may have something to do with Australia being such a huge country.

Hi Bandaid55,

I've had reasonable success with finding stuff on Gumtree.
I see there's a K1000 (body only) in Manly currently up for sale there.

Also look at the markets in the forums (but you knew that already, didn't you)

Good luck in your search

Bruce

Heyy Skunktail,

Thank you so much for helping me !! I've made a contact with a person on pentax forum about his selling, it seems pretty good but might need some foams replacement(which it is normal he said to me.)

yeah I saw the $100 body only, I'm a little scared, I'm a student and for $100 is quite a lot for just the body. I thought about calling that seller too to see if eveything works, how much would it cost if I just want the body(not including the flash) I hope its this one you were talking about:
PENTAX ASHAI K 1000 SLR CAMERA BODY | Non Digital Cameras | Gumtree Australia Manly Area - Manly

I'm also talking to another person on gumtree at the moment too..

My head is hurting I'm thinking if I should buy the body and get another better lens from here or ebay or gumtree..very hard to decide. I have a 50mm f1.8 on my canon 60D. I want to use an adaptor too later on, but for now my head is hurting to debate trying to get a good deal for myself =] first time doing these things on my own

That's the one I saw.
I wasn't sure of your budget or whether you had any lenses already.
I would have tried to talk him down anyway,
you can get quite a reasonable camera and lens package for that price if you're willing to go with another model.

Like most people here, I started with the lens that came with my camera and got additional ones as I improved and/or I needed something extra.
I find a 50mm covers 90% of my film photography, but I wouldn't turn my nose up at a lens just because it comes with the package.
Have fun with it
