Hello from Scotland

I have recently joined the forum and thought I'd better introduce myself. I moved to Pentax in November 2012 from being a long time Olympus user. My photography is purely my hobby. I got into photography in the mid 70's when through my job I had access to Konica and Olympus SLRs - I particularly coveted the OM-1. I had a long layoff from photography but bought a Kodak DC210 digital camera back in '99. I then moved back to Olympus with first the C then E-series. I have a K-30 and have spent the last year building up a set of old primes as well as the DA 18-55 and 55-300. I'm looking to dabble in some macro work and came across this site when searching.

Welcome to the forum, with your joining I think I can use the collective noun, there's a "puckle" of Scots here on the forum.

Welcome aboard, and thanks for the intro! The forum is an indispensable resource when building up your lens collection. There are so many helpful people here just itching to spend all too much of your money

Welcome to a fellow scot. The weather sealing of the K30 should come in handy...
