Hi folks!

Hi folks,

Just joined the forums. I am recent owner of a 645D, FA 150mm f2.8, FA 45-85mm f4.5 and FA 80-150mm f4.5.

I decided to sell up my Nikon D800, Nikkor glass and Canon 6D and Canon glass and try the 645D. I do still have my Fuji X-Pro1 and Samsung NX300 for casual, walk around use.

I will be moving back to Bangkok next month, after spending 7 years back in the UK following 18 years in the Far East before that. I am looking forward to getting back to all those great photo ops in Thailand!

Cheers.

Thanks. I've been lucky enough to be able to afford to indulge myself over the last couple of years. I am looking forward to getting out and about with the 645D in the coming months.

I love my gadgets! I am looking forward to getting out and about with the 645D in the US for a couple of weeks during the second half of September and then when we get back out to Thailand in October.

Hi Jean,

Once I have mastered the change from FF DSLR to Pentax's MF, I'll try and share a few of my better efforts!

Welcome to the PARTY!!! That's quite remarkable, to me at least, that you gave up your Canikon ways... What's your excuse btw? Okay, I heard 645D... but wow, that's a lot of camera... yeah. Some more details on why would be cool though.
In any event, if you're happy, I'm happy for you!

I'm also curious as I just read a bit and am rather impressed with the Samsung nx300... wow, from the specs and things I read so far it really delivers the goods. My source: Samsung NX300 Review & Rating | PCMag.com
There are others that give really high ratings. Just in time for my Christmas present!!!!
woohooo!!
Again, welcome and do share your pics when you can
