Hello from Berlin, Germany

To be honest, I was visiting Pentaxforums for quite some time Google had sent me here some day, and then more and more often and I found it a very nice place! To date, I was more active in a german forum which is generally nice but where I sometimes can't really feel at home while moderation is quite harsh and predominant.
One thing (amongst others) I find very useful here are the user lens reviews.

I started with an agfa pocket camera, 110 film, about 1978, age 10.
Then a Minolta X700 from '82 or '83 which has served me for years.
I lost the path of photography a bit in the late nineties/early 2000s, but am enjoying it again since the purchase of my Samsung GX1s (=Pentax istDs2), a fey old lenses and now my K-5.

Ok, I'd better stop here, we'll meet again anyway

Welcome to Pentax and this Forum!

You live in a very photogenic city with many interesting subjects. I hope to return for a fourth visit some day, maybe this year.

@Jean Poitiers
Merci Jean

@ c.a.m.
Ottawa isn't bad either
I was only there once, and two things have impressed me immensely. The heating in the (very nice) house where we were guests was managed with hot air streaming though holes in the wall of every room. And then, near the house was a canal where our host could simply go to ice-skate just up to her work.
