unlurking from Singapore

Hello!

The name's Avarielle and I've been horribly poisoned by Pentax cameras. Hence, I'm here to do my research before I make the switch from
Nikon to Pentax.

Currently, I use a Nikon D40 that used to belong to my father. He barely used it in the 5-odd years he had it. So it is now mine and gets used on practically a daily basis.

I don't have any specific genres of photography I "specialise" in but I enjoy toy photography, macro, and architecture. I also dabble in landscapes, astrophotography, street, birding, and whatever my mood desires. (Except insects and models. I do not like bugs, and shooting posed people bore me.)

Well. I'll have to end this post here. Considering I'm typing it in the bus to work, and I'm almost reaching my workplace.

Welcome to the forum, you won't go wrong with a Pentax digital SLR camera, I myself, have and use the K-5 & K-5 II.s and find them excellent.

I use tapatalk2 on my iPhone. So people can't really see what I'm typing on my phone.

Welcome/Selamat datang/Huan ying to the forum!
I am sure you will find all the information you need here.
If not, just ask! Here there is no "noob question" or stupid questions
Atm I am using a K-30 which I find cover all my needs and right now I think you should be able to get a good deal on the camera as the new Pentax K-50 & K-500 just hit the shelf's.
Have fun browsing the forum and let us know when you have decided which camera is right for you

Cheers
Yos

So I finally made my decision a week ago.

The camera shop made me an offer I couldn't resist - also my pay had just come in. So now I have a blue Pentax K30, and the WR kit lens. I don't have other Pentax lens yet, but I'm hoping to get more lens soon.

I'm also looking out for a mount to adapt my Nikon lens to the Pentax mount.

I haven't really had the time to fully explore the camera so hopefully I'll get some shooting done soon and have stuff to share.
