Hi,
Here we go guys, a newbie with more camera technology in his bag than brains to figure it all out and use it to it's best! Played with a K10D for a good while then became seduced by the K30 and may have been amongst the first in the UK to acquire a white bodied example. The Mrs suggested that it looked a bit 'Star Wars' until she saw it nailed to the Sigma 150-500, then even she had to admit that it looked pretty cool from a visual perspective, which was nice
The voices in my head have just recently made me purchase a mint K-5 and simply switching it on scares me quite frankly, let alone thinking about using it,but what the hell...it's a bench mark bit of Pentax kit that'll wait for me to grow into it no doubt.

By all accounts all three gigs went down a storm and she was in negotiations for a fourth venue around the Northampton region until some bad-assed crew of heavies calling themselves 'the 9th' muscled in on her scene and closed it down.
Typical bleedin' Roman attitude of course...anything resembling enjoyment amongst the natives, suppress it!

Cheers for your response and yes, I will undoubtedly tap into -and benefit from- the collective wisdom evident on this site
