Introduction - tebe2hu

Hi all,

I am Bela, a guy from Hungary, an aviation engineer and doing photography since my age of 5. I'm glad to have found this forum.
I became a Pentax user by accident but really got to love this brand! It happened that before my first flight to Canada, in Brasov, Romania I was attacked on the street. I managed to disarm the robber but my good-old Chinon CM-3 was dropped and broke, unrepairably. I did not buy a replacement then and two days later my plane took a south approach in Toronto, at noon, there was a precious view, just some hundreds feet above the Niagara falls and I had NO camera!!! I promised to myself that I won't return home till I buy a new SLR. Thus, on my way home I bought my first Pentax camera, a 35mm MZ-50. At the start of my digital age, I bought the second one, an Optio MX-4. It's still operable, I use it to take video clips and sound records. The last one is a K20D, more precisely, the second K20D because the first was stolen... The lenses I currently use are a 35-135 Asahi-Pentax, a 28-80 mm and a 18-200 mm Tamron. Sometimes I also take my friend's 85 mm soft Pentax for portrait shots.

So, this is me. Have a nice day, all.

Your road to Pentax has been nothing but amazing! Mine was boring. I just could not choose whether to stick with Canon, or shift to Nikon. So, I bought a Pentax.

Welcome to the forum, seems you've had quite a run of bad luck there, lets hope things can only get better for you now.
