New to PentaxForums from Sydney

Hi Everyone,

I have recently switched from Canon 300D to Pentax K10D - what a difference! As someone who learned his photographic skills on cameras that had no automation, not even a rangefinder, I really enjoy the control offered by the K10D. It's one of those cameras that gives a sense of real satisfaction in the way it handles and performs - not perfect, but very, very good.

The only downside to the changeover was having to sell my lenses, flash etc and start all over again, but no regrets. My only lens so far is a Sigma 18-200mm which is surprisingly good, especially for the price.

I am still working out the best combination of settings for different scenarios, however the overall picture quality is excellent.

Gday Chris and welcome. I am new here too and hail from Sydney.
We went for a visit to the Pentax CR Kennedy office searching for a particular lense. Had the lens in my hands within 1 hour. They are located at Pyrmont and are very helpful and make you feel part of the Pentax family. They have a showroom too.
Anyway, best of luck and have fun.
