Hello from Melbourne

I have just returned to photography after 25 years. Very active in the past in local camera club, with my Pentax Super A going everywhere with me. Found the Pentax Forum and it was my reference back into the new digital photography world. As a result of your reviews I am the proud owner of a K30, however the camera that has put the fun and passion back into photography is the much maligned K-01, which I could not resist at the throw away price it was going for. Having used it extensively for nearly 12 months I cannot understand the negative reaction to this camera. Just entered my first photo and look forward to enjoying being part of this great Pentax users forum.

I heard some time ago that the proportion of Pentax cameras in Oz was higher than elsewhere. There certainly seem to be plenty of Pentax cameras, and 2nd hand lenses. Anyway, I know you'll enjoy your K-01, as I do mine.

We are heavily outnumbered here in Melbourne. But I always tell the snobbish users of other makes I have pentax gear because I have class. People who are genuinely interested I tell them I am old school (started with a spotmatic) and pentax gear works the way I tell it to.

What do you like shooting? I'm mostly into wildlife.

G'day mate from a K-7 driver from Melton, Welcome aboard Pentax forums, you will find them a pretty good bunch, even the yanks. All good people with two (three) passions, PENTAX, photography and PENTAX.

Hi Bob, my main interests are portraits. seascapes/landscapes and any abstract shapes and textures that may catch my eye.

That's a nice selection of interests. Seems like you enjoy seeking out interesting subjects in what might otherwise look ordinary.
