Hello from Italy!

Hi everybody, I'm a newbie of this Forum but I'm a Pentax veteran: I started with an old film SLR P-30N, switched to DSLR with the K-7, then sold it and got a K-5.

Now I have just bought a K-5IIs body and I'm selling the K-5: the lens remain the same, since I have a DA* 50-135 f/2.8, a DA* 16-50 f/2.8, a DA Limited 15 f/4 and an old Vivitar Series 1 70-210 f/2.8-4 which came from the film era...

I just got a new tripod/monopod: a gorgeous Benro Travel Angel II C-2692TB1.
My favourite shots are on stage: concerts, theatre plays and so on.

Have a nice weekend!

Thanks! Tonight I'll make some shots at a concert: I received the new body just a couple of days ago, until now I have only taken photos of front/back focus test chart and Color Checker Passport...

If you wish, you can see some concert pictures taken with the old K-5 and the great DA* 50-135 here.

Good to welcome another veteran who came up through the Pentax ranks.

Looking through my Lightroom I have quite a few of these shots myself.

I am back... The concert lighting was really awful, so I had to boost sensitivity up to 6400 ISO instead of the usual 1600, but the K5IIs handled the bad situation very well.

Here are some pictures: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/3uk0teiiaqkr3p0/0ut0WD5Xv0
