Greetings from the Netherlands

Hi, I'm Sander from Utrecht in the Netherlands. Last year I made the leap from Panasonic compact camera's to Pentax DSLR's.
Since then I first owned a K-10 and since May I have a K-5 IIs as well. What a great camera! Some of my lenses: Pentax 18-135mm, Sigma 100-300mm F4 + 1,4x tc and recently found a near mint Pentax FA* 80-200mm F2.8. Starting to learn to master this heavy beast.
I like birds, planes and race cars. And I'm looking in to astrophotography since january. Started with the moon

Hi Sander, and welcome to Pentax Forums. You've made a great start with your system. The FA*80-200/2.8 is, as you say, a heavy beast, but one that can be very rewarding in the right hands. Best of luck with your photography and enjoy your time here.
