G'day from Victoria, Australia.

G'day,

After of a year of obsessive research, I have finally purchased a Pentax K-01. I'm looking forward to joining the 'Pentaxian' community and sharing and gaining experience through PentaxForums.

If anybody in Australia is wishing to part with any lenses (regardless of mount), I'll do my best to get them off your hands. I am specifically looking to buy Takumars (aren't we all?) but I'm definitely interested if any of you have any other brand or model of lens that you may have no use for.

Looking forward to joining the community.

Mullac7991.

Welcome

A K01 is a great start - love mine although it's had two holidays in Japan free of charge. I've had some of my Takumars for 40 years. You'll need to out live me to get mine.

G'day Mate welcome to our little community.
You will find quite a few Aussies on PF, but I'm not sure there will be many who will part with their Takumars. They are starting to get quite pricy as more and more are finding out what a great product Pentax is.

G'day Mullac. Welcome from yet another Melbtaxian*.

Maybe you and I need to talk, I have a cupboard full of glass I don't use that I collected when I was starting out some years ago. Maybe you can convince me to part with some. At the very least I'll be happy to let you have a play with them.

Cheers

Welcome.

You'll be surprised how much of the gear in the marketplace on this forum is sold by Australians.
