Another Aussie!

Hi All

I've just ordered myself a K-30 as I'm taking a Photography Unit as my last elective (and final subject) in an IT degree (with a Web Design minor). I've been researching all week to find a well priced DSLR and concluded that the Pentax K-30/50 was the one for me. I found an awesome local price on a 30 with a 18-55 kit lens and pulled the trigger....Then I lurked these forums for a day or so before I joined up.

Looking forward to reading more, and saving up for an 18-135 after I've learned some stuff, and caught the bug.

CR Kennedy have always been a strong presence in Oz. I'm not sure where I read it, but Pentax has a much higher representation, per capita, here.

In the early days of the 645D, ten times as many came to Oz, as to the USofA.

Enjoy your photography.

Welcome and they just keep coming, just how many photographers are there in Oz and they all must be using Pentax judging by the numbers of members here.

Well you should see the street of Sydney on let's say Australia Day, you will find everyone and their dog's got a DSLR of one brand of another...
