Hi All !

First off all, thank you all for reviews, discussions, examples of pictures, etc ... on this website !!

Then, my name is Alain (Allan in english). I have taken photo for a long time. I started when I was six years old with a "Compact film camera", then I bought a Panasonic bridge one before using a DSLR of Pentax.

So I had a K10D during 7/8 years and then I have been using Pentax K3 for several months with great pleasure

Usually, I toke pictures with these lenses :
- Pentax DA 10-17,
- Sigma 17-50 f/d: 2,8
- Pentax M 50 f/d: 1,7 so 77mm approximatively
- Samyang 85mm so 125mm ...
- Pentax M 200mm f/d: 4 so 300mm

++ I have an other camera, it's the Pentax K1000 (so film camera), only for black and white use.

Landscape, portrait, street art, etc ... I like very much the bokeh ..

Sometimes, I take photo of space (planets and landscape from stars and constellations), it's wonderful ... but I have a specific hardware with 2 scopes.

In this moment, I hesitate with two choices of lenses because with the Pentax news for his full frame ...
Lenses full frame (lenses FA or Sigma) or not That is the question !!
Anticipation or not ...

So see you later on next topics and reviews

Welcome Alain! Pentax seems to be a bigger presence in France than in North America. It will be nice to have your contributions to this board. There are already a number of active users from France here. Bienvenue!
