Hello from Exeter UK

Hello Pentax users.

Enjoying reading the reviews and other posts.

I live in what I consider to be a beautiful part of the world, close to the coast and Dartmoor, in Exeter, Devon, United Kingdom with Kathy.

Getting a little colder at nights now with winter (fall) coming on.

Kathy and I have 2 Samsung GX-10s, I believe these are Pentax K-10Ds inside. One came with the 18-55mm and 50-200mm lens kit and the other purchased as body with Tamron 18-200mm lens.
A more recent purchase is the excellent Pentax DA* 60-250mm lens.

Kathy and I are into all things to do with transportation, young and old, be it large commercial or military aircraft (despite Kathy being disabled we have managed to attend RIAT every year, though missed 2012) and steam or diesel locomotives etc.

Neither of us are wonderful photographers, we just enjoy ourselves.
A couple of photos, not meant to be special or even good, just that were taken local to us.
Red Arrows at a hazy Dawlish, Meteor also at Dawlish and Light Pacific locomotive Tangmere.

We are looking to replace one of the GX-10s with a K-3, to partner the DA* 60-250mm, soon and hope it will be a good match.
Likely to buy the kit with DA 18-135mm and use that to replace the Tamron on the other GX-10.

Hello Derek,
welcome to the forum; you've posted up some very nice shots - I hadn't realised there were still airworthy Meteors

Welcome to the forum, when photography is a hobby or a passion that's exactly what it should be... enjoyment.

I agree - some fine photographs there !! You got pretty classic cameras - I enjoy my K10D a lot - and that DA* 60-250mm is a stellar lens indeed - it surely delivers in right hands !
