Hello from Southampton, UK

I'm Russ, just got going in photography properly last year. Started with a Canon 1000D and a couple of Sigma lenses. The camera developed a problem and i decided i'd never be able to afford any of the decent Canon glass anyway. So switched systems to Pentax. Picked up a cheap K10D with the DA 18-55 and a Tamron Di Ld 70-300. And then added the wonderful Pentax-A 50mm 1.7 for peanuts.

Not entirely happy with the Tamron, that may have to go asap. But really enjoying the K10D with the Pentax lenses.

May have to pick the brains of the forum for a future lens purchase.

Welcome to the forum, good to have another Brit in here.

There's lots of good gen in the lenses section, both Pentax and third party kit.

Not far away at all, just on the doorstep in the scheme of things.

Some great places around New Milton for taking a stroll in the country. We love the New Forest.
