Hi there,

after reading much of what's happening on this forum, I decided to be part of it instead of just only looking
I live in Sydney, Australia since about six years and I still love taking photos of this fantastic city and the nature around it.

My photo journey started in the mid 80's with a Pentax ME-F and a 1.7/50 - my first big investment in lenses was in those days a Tokina 3.5/200.
I was mainly taking photos in the nature and did color slides - what might explain why I still try to get the photos right from the beginning and not in photoshop -- but I do work with RAW since about a year or so.

I'm now with a Pentax K-01 with the 40mm pancake (since 2 weeks) - still getting used to the SILKYPIX software
So why a K-01?? - reckon because I like the style -----> and the designer is from Sydney -. Just bought on ebay a Sigma 18-125 which won't be the last lens I will buy but which is good for my travelling. Before I had a Canon 550D - with heaps of lenses - now selling them all on ebay. A rather radical change I think but I never really liked Canon and can't even explain why! Next lenses I hope to buy are a good Macro and a 200mm tele - (would be nice to have both in one) and later a prime wide angle - probably will also invest in a K-5II bit not sure because the K-30 seems to be doing very good in all tests.

Welcome to the forum, it's seems many us here all started our photographic journey in the 80's.

Must have been something in the water at the time.
