Hi there

Nice to be here. After a long break from photography followed by fun with a Lumix TZ6 P&S I took the plunge with a Pentax K30 recently and am enjoying myself immensely. Don't have much time but I managed to salvage some of my old M-series lenses as well. The K30 knocks the spots off competitors! So I'm 60 later this year, British living in Italy. Happy Snapping!

I'm also British and living in Italy, and recently bought a k 500, would have liked the k30 or 50, but at the time the budget was tight. I haven't seen many shops with Pentax near where I live, village in north east, so have been relying on internet for supplies.

Same here, based in Verona. Got my K30 at a reasonable price over internet from Rome 8 months ago... lucky since the company did a bunk a few weeks before Xmas 13 leaving plenty of disgruntled customers. Phew.
