Ciao Canon Hello Pentax :)

Hiya Folks!

I must say I feel comfortable here already - what a mine of information & a lovely warm informal attitude too - love it!
I've messed around with Canon for a while, a couple of 350D's, S70 & G11 - good gear no doubt with a massive proviso: fabulous prices for glassware. I fancied a Sigma 17-55mm f2.8 Macro but never found one at an acceptable price. Having to buy SR on every lens & no backward compatibility makes a hobby a burden.

Upshot is jumping the Canon ship.

I just love the idea of all these classic 'proper' lens not having to be junked, so much so that I've already bagged a SMC Pentax-M 50mm F1.7 despite the K100Ds still being in transit!

I feel like a big kid again & it's great

Talk again soon!

Welcome to the forum, don't tell the Canon folk, they tend to get a tad upset when they hear this sort of thing.
