Greetings from México!

Hi guys, I'm new to this board. Actually I have been checking it out for several months now, but I never registered!

Anyways, I'm a programmer from Monterrey, México. I started getting interested in photography in high school when I was working as an assistant for my uncle who's actually a professional photographer at events. He taught me photography basics using a Pentax k1000 camera, and then I got myself a Canon AE-1. Later on I got a Pentax k100d camera that I liked a lot (but sold recently) and that I used extensively. Unfortunately after a while I stopped caring it around because I felt it was too bulky, so half year ago a got myself a Pentax Q7 which I think it's great!! Since I started taking photos again I thought I should stick to the Q and the K mount for lenses, and I decided to get a Pentax ME Super with a couple of lenses from Ebay at a great price. Anyways, i'll let you know the results I get with those lenses soon.

I'm looking forward to contribute to this forum!

Regards,
Oscar

Oh the fisheye is really good! Real easy to use and sharp. Unfortunately I may have to sell my fisheye to help pay for the 08 😞

if I didn't need the 08 for real estate photography then id just keep the fisheye

Bienvenidos, Oscar!
Great to hear about your experiences with various cameras and return to Pentax land. I've been to Monterrey a few times and have in-laws there, plus in Ciudad Anauhac. Maybe one of these days we'll all be in the same town.

I think my feet are still sore from endless walking in the enormous Parque de Fundadores about eight years ago! hahaha Honestly, it is a beautiful park and a fantastic asset for the city. I enjoyed your flickr pics and look forward to seeing more of yours here.

Welcome y abrazos!
