Hello from the UK -

Dear All,

I just recently acquired a Pentax K5 II with 18-55 lens kits and very impressed with all results, Welcome to the Pentax family as they say.

A bit about myself, I work for the Foreign Office and have spent 7 out of the last 9 years living abroad in the coutries of Singapore and Zambia. I have a wonderful Zambian wife and bautiful daughter called Pauline and Crystal who celebrates her 3rd birthday later in the month.

The majority of my photos will be family based so will be looking to upgrade my 18-55 lens soon, any assistance with what lens to purchase appreciated.

Look forward to joining in with forums.

Best wishes,

Welcome to the forum, guessing you must be a West Country man from that forum name.

When you've finished globe trotting, your county also has many glorious photo opportunities.
