Hello from Ontario

Hi there! My name is Jon and I'm from Ontario, Canada.

I got into Pentax through using my dad's Spotmatic. Ended up with a k-x, but that died while upgrading the firmware so now I have a k-5.
Eventually I got a Q too. Hopefully that'll be the end of it for a while, but I doubt it.

I'll post some of my photos when I get the chance because it's easier than writing!

Welcome Jon - and thanks for the tip off on the sale at Blacks in your other posting.
As Tako noted there are lots of locals around.

Thanks Adam. Unfortunately I'm not allowed to edit that post until tomorrow, but I did see where I went wrong.
Until tomorrow...

I can't help but stare at those flowers!

While I wait to edit my previous post, here is a really easy clue to my whereabouts in Ontario:

Once you are up to speed check out the groups, and follow what is going on here: Toronto Pentaxians - PentaxForums.com

I believe this weekend there is a morning blossom shoot at High Park (if the thunderstorm doesn't denude the trees first!)

For some reason I'm still getting the security message that I need to have 2 posts or have my account for longer than a day before I can edit a post.

Jean - you may recognize some of the images depending where exactly you are in France.
Mattt - thanks for the heads up!

but that died while upgrading the firmware
Welcome to the forum, one has to ask... is this a new "upgrade strategy" when dealing and justifying to nearest and dearest, that I'm not familiar with.

I was so upset when the upgrade screen froze. I only had the k-x for about 3 years, but luckily I was able to take it across to the west coast of Canada, the Philippines, and a bit of Europe. Pentax Canada said they would give me a replacement camera (wouldn't say which), but they'd have to keep my k-x. I'm a sentimental guy so I kept the k-x body. Anyway, I was reluctant to get another Pentax since it could become a paperweight from a simple firmware upgrade. I thought 'I'm finally free!'. Alas, a camera shop was selling used k-5 with 18-135 kits for $750 say I had to jump on it. So the point is, Pentax made me do it!
