Hello from Italy!

Hy,

My name is Marian, and i live in Italy. I just entered in the world of Pentax with my brand new K30 (dal 18-55, 50-200 kit) - hoping to be delivered any day now. It's my first DSLR, passing from bridge Canon. I choose Pentax for many reasons, including pentaxforums.com, a unique useful tool. I am always sure to find here good advices, and hope to find good deals too (for a beginner wide angle prime).

Welcome here and glad you find the forum useful.
Enjoy your K30 when it arrives.
Wide angle prime? You cannot go past DA 15 for small and best, even if it's pricey. There are not many cheap WA primes going around...

You're right, it has breathtaking landscapes. Of course, Scotland doesn't have anything to feel ashame too!
I'm living up north, close to Milan. It's a hills area. Very poetic.
Impressive set of manual lens you have.

Welcome! I have relatives that live in Canegrate. We got to visit them last fall.

The K-30 is a fantastic camera, I am having a great time learning how to use it. I hope to get a limited lens one day.

Welcome. Enjoy the K-30.

As for a prime lens in the sort of length you mentioned, I have to say I'm really impressed with the Takumar bayonet 28mm 1:2.8 I got a few weeks ago. It's completely manual of course, but really easy to use, with great results. Really quite cheap on eBay.

Thanks for advice, I'm a bit intrigue by the all manual.

Welcome Marian,
You are fortunate to have so many imaging opportunities in your country and surrounding countries. The street scenes in virtually any piazza are wonderful. Our recent favorites are Alto Adige and FVG. Looking forward to returning in April.
