Hello from Wicklow, Ireland

Hi guys,

Just a quick shout out from the Garden of Ireland! Been interested in photography for a long time now, but eventually, on holiday, got frustrated with the limitations of the P&S. Did a load of research and finally decided in 2012 that a Pentax K5 was the best choice! And have not regretted it since.

I've found the wealth of info on these forums invaluable, especially the reviews on the lenses. Which lead me to buy several second-hand ones.

It's great to find so many people who appreciate what Pentax has to offer, especially compared to other well-loved brands. When out and about, I would rarely see another Pentaxian!

I've started experimenting with off-camera flash and learning to light a subject well. Then the K3 competition came up and thought 'why not?'. A bit late in May at this stage, but I guess better late than never.

Cheers guys,
Chris

Cheers Jean. Will post some more pics soon. In fact, here's one I took a few months back using an old M 50mm 1.7. Actually one of the best pieces of glass I own.

Thanks for your image and yeah, my M 50/1.7 is the best "performer-to-price" ratio in my kit ... really, better in some ways than a few f1.4 50's that I have ... Cheers, J
