Hi everyone

I'm the Grumpy Old Git from Wales, (aka welshgog); I've been taking photos since the days when I used to have to screw your lens into a camera, and I still have a good few of those old lenses in my cupboard. I shoot mainly landscapes and flowers/ insects in film and digital and although not a dedicated Pentaxion, I own 4 or 5 Pentax cameras all of which are well loved.

The grumpy old git? I don't know that many Welsh, but I would expect there to be more than one grumpy one among you

Welcome aboard, grumpy or not! Lots of experienced folks around here, you should feel right at home.

Thank you ;)

Thanks for your kind welcome folks; I've just been looking through my cabinet and I found an old SV that I had forgotten, my lovely old K1000, 2 x P30's and an MV 30; I have a K100D with 18-50 and 50-200 lenses + a Tamron 70-300mm, and I'm expecting delivery tomorrow of a K10D (with less than 5,400 actuations). I also have a couple of old K mount third party bodies and a lot of old K mount, legacy lenses too; perhaps its time I sold my old EOS 10D or my Oly E-1 - - - - or maybe not, doh !
