Hello from France

Hello guys,

Let me introduce myself : i'm a 37yo french man using pentax DSLR since K100D back in 2007. So i had a K100D, which i sold later to buy a K-x. I sold this last one too to buy a K5 ii. And in the meanwhile i used to do some astrophotography with a K-10 i still own.

In broad daylight, i like street photography, portraits on the fly, i did some weddings (starting with friend's ones). And as you've understood, some astrophotos (but i still have to progress in that field)

My optics : pentax 50@1.4, tamron 70-200@2.8, tamron 70-300, tamron 17-50@2.8, sigma 18-50@2.8 macro, orion 80ED@7.5 (astro)

See you soon

Hello Astroboy69
I just wanted to say how much I loved traveling around France as we followed the 2005 Tour de France. What a beautiful country.
