Hello from Paris & Berlin

Dear Pentax community members,

I've been following this great board for about three months now, reviews and posts helped me a lot on my way shifting from Nikon to the Pentax world.

Since about three months I'm a happy owner of a Pentax K5II with a SMC Pentax-DA 21mm F3.2 Limited lens, and I wonder how I could have missed this great DSLR and lens for such a long time.

It's just the perfect allround kit for my needs as amateur street photographer and want-to-be semi-professional studio photographer with ambitions in small video production. My first experience on the K5II, especially first steps in video production brought me to the Pentax K-01 that I got just yesterday. :-)

I'm German, living between Paris and Berlin and would be happy to meet and exchange with other Pentax enthusiasts. Feel free to write me in English, French or German. Don't worry if I don't answer within 48h. By the way, a great place to meet photographers in Paris is the Paris Photography Meetup group (The Paris Photography Meetup Group (Paris) - Meetup) whenever you are in Paris, feel free to meet me there during a Paris photo walk.

Thank you guys from this great community
Go on with the good work,

All the best,
Christian, Paris

Hi kerrodown and Jean Poitiers,

Thanks for your welcome message, I'll post my images as soon as possible.

By the way I'm organizing LinguaCamp 2013 Berlin a free-to-attend international language learning event on 21 & 22 of September in Berlin.
Any photographer or video enthusiasts who would like to come there and take pictures ?
Do you have an idea if and how we could get Pentax as a sponsor ?

Cheers from Paris,
Christian

Hi guys,

Here is my first street shot from Paris with my new Pentax Q7. I love this tiny camera.
