Hi from Melbourne.

Hi, I'm Martin from Melbourne Australia. I've been taking photos for over 30 years. Originally developing my own B/W 35mm taken with my old Zenit-TTL and Helios 44mm lens at High school. Two years ago bought a Pentax K-7 with a 18-135mm WR lens. It has served me well but I have just bought a K-5ii body as I like to take a lot of low light night shots when traveling overseas and pictures of my boy's school productions.
Regards
Martin

Good to see a Melbournite aboard. Maybe we should set up an OZ group of Pentaxians! LOL

Thanks everyone for your welcomes. I've no plans of Pentax Forum or world domination, so I'm just happy to be part of this forum...

Hi Jean, I have already posted a few pictures under on the "DA 18-135 WR, Show us what it can do" thread.
I hope to contribute some more.
