Hi Pentaxians!

Hello all!
I have never written on a forum before, but I have been lurking on and off here for a few years.
My first Pentax was a K100DSuper, which I bought pretty much because the price was right, and I needed a decent camera to photograph my jewellery. It had a problem with front focussing, so I ended up getting a few cheap legacy lenses since I had to manual focus anyways...
50mm f1.7
28mm f2.8
100mm macro f4
All I can say is that this caused untold frustration for my wife- though I learned so much about how lenses interact with the camera, that I think I became a much better photographer for it.
About a year ago I upgraded to a K-5, and my interest in possibly making a career out of photography is slowly growing. I just did a little photo shoot with a friend, and he was blown away with the results.
So, I am hoping to learn heaps on the forums and have some interaction with you all.
Cheers, Chris
Oh, yeah, I am from Australia.

Go the Aussies! Actually truth be told, I have only lived in Oz for the past 10 years, before that I was Canadian

Ha ha, that's awesome, Handlebar, I have just moved from being 10 min from Byron Bay, to 30 min away, great bit of the world, that's for sure. I reckon if I ever moved back to Canada, I'd bring a couple boards back home as well!
