Hello from Australia

Hi, names Greg, all the way from AUS.
Have a K200D with 18-55 I bought many years ago which I do a little work with from time to time, otherwise, have older SF7 film SLRs with original lenses.
Just managed to find a battery grip for the K200D for $66AUD from a place near my old work, looking to get a Yongnuo YN-560iii for some added flash capability.

Especially love landscape pics, macro shots of flowers and insects.

Hi and welcome to the forum!
I'm a fan of macro and insect photography as well... and the YN-560 mkIII is a terrific flash for the bucks!

Welcome to the forum, I reckon everybody in Australia must own a Pentax, judging by the size of the membership here.

rough hehe is a good unit.
my battery grip came today for my K200D - D-BG3 - new old stock from Vanbar. $66 - bargain.
Yongnuo YN-560iii will be next on the shopping list but not for a few weeks now.

might look for another k200d or maybe k20 for macro/close up stuff - and keep the k200d for the longer /scenery stuff. any thoughts out there?
