Greetings from Africa!

Hi Everyone,

I hail from Pretoria, South Africa. I enjoy mainly wildlife and bird photography, albeit as a complete amateur. But at least a very enthusiastic amateur at that.

My first SLR camera, a birthday present more than 30 years ago, was a Ricoh XR2S (with Pentax K mount). That introduced me to the "World of Pentax" where I remained ever since. Currently I regard my K-5IIs as the best thing since sliced bread! Nevertheless, one is never too old to learn and I'm looking forward to enriching my photograpy experience from this forum.

Thank you for receiving me here!

Regards,

Hennie

G'day Hennie. Good to have you here. Hope you continue to enjoy your photography and I'm certain the K-5IIs will facilitate this for years to come.

Welcome! Another wildlife enthusiast here You are far better placed for such activity than I am, though. I spend way too much keeping visiting your part of the world... I posted some pictures from the latest trip here: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/115-pentax-k-5/123731-no-more-tests-just-...ml#post2638165

Now that is a wake-up call! I haven't taken pictures of my city since the days of my film camera.
