Hi from South Africa

Used a K1000 long ago with a few pocket digitals for family photography in between. Bought the K50 with two kit lenses included. Added a 14mm Pentax and 150-500m Sigma. Hope to improve from the amateur that I am to the level of those that contributes to your photo contests.

Welcome aboard! You should be able to give that Sigma some exercise being placed where you are. Had a wonderful vacation in KZN and EC last year.

Welcome and looking forward to some images. Visited the Kgalagadi in 2012, and used a Tamron 70-200/2.8 and Sigma 120-400/4.5-5.6 to good effect on a pair of K20Ds.
