Howdy from Adelaide

Hi all,

I've spent a lot of time reading through the forums & thought it time to sign up, and possibly contribute at some point!!

I started with a Konica Minolta 5D, then a K-7 and now have a K-5. I'm waiting in anticipation for the next high-end DSLR from Pentax and I'm not fussed one way or another if it is FF or not - what ever comes will exceed my ability. FF would be nice though - something to grow into.

I enjoy photographing all sorts, but particularly architecture, animals and portraits. Also enjoy letting my 10y.o. daughter play with the K-5 and from time-to-time put me to shame.

I look forward to improving my Lightroom skills!! Also looking forward to continuing to spread the word about the merits of the Pentax product.

Cheers,
Darren.

Welcome to the forum, that's two awesome tools you have in your arsenal, a K-5 and Lightroom.
