Greetings from Denmark

Hello everyone,

My name is Michael and I'm a "newcomer" to the DSLR world. After reading a ton of reviews about different entry to mid range DSLR camera's last year I finally decided to buy a Pentax K30. The reason? I chose it because it was relatively small, light weight, well built, weather resistant (it rains a lot in Denmark), affordable, and simple to use but still advanced enough for me to help develop new photography skills. It only lacks a bit in the battery compartment and in my mind I do not need the movie mode so badly. If I want to shoot movies I'll pick up a movie camera anyway :-)

Well after a year of playing around with my Pentax K30 and the 18-135 mm WR kit lense I'm still a happy user of Pentax.

After a lot of thinking I have finally decided to buy my first prime lense - a Pentax 55mm DA*. Why? Because its fast which is relevant for night time shoots, well built, handles well and is quiet - a feature which is nice to have when you want to shoot pictures at a family party, wedding and the likes.

I have followed pentaxforums for the past year and finally feel ready to join the forum to learn more and share knowledge.

Best regards,
