Hello from Singapore

Hi all,
my name is Francesco, I am Italian but I live in Singapore.
I have been following this forum since I bought my K-5, but I've never come up to post.
I have been "convinced" to enter Pentax world by my brother who started with a K-20D, taslking about how good was the camera for its features, the price and so on.... so after a year of research and mostly "getting convinced I wanted to keep going with photography", I came up with my K-5.

I am still a neophyte, trying to improve the technique in general, but most important trying to understand which photographer I want to be....that is gonna get some time I guess.
In a while I fill find the "courage" to post some of my shoots for your judgment and help to improve (I know your evaluations will be quite "heavy", but also full of suggestions ), but for now I will keep following your posts and usefull information about Pentax.

Looking forward to be another usefull contributor to the forum.

Welcome, Chobin!

Ah, how I envy the expat life! I'd love to go live in Singapore. Not to mention, all that fine glass you have access to! ^.^

Post photos on the forum. The people here are extremely constructive in their criticism and very friendly.

Hi Chobin

Welcome to the forum.

I lived in Singapore from 2010 till 2012 and bought my K5 there, plus the DA70, DA21, DA35 Macro and more. I bought it all at SLR Revolution in Funan Digitalife Mall on North Bridge Road so you can get Pentax there if you look around, there are other stores in the same mall that stock Pentax too. I even managed to get them to price match on a couple of items.
