Hello from Melbourne Australia

Yes, another Melbournian, but I originally hail from Adelaide, so I'll type slowly...

I am new to Pentax, but an avid amateur photographer for about 30 years. I kinda lost the hobby when I bought my first digiital camera - it was so disappointing I didn't enjoy it any more.

That was 10 years ago. Now my daughter is about to get married so I lashed out and bought myself a K20D with a couple of lenses and a flash (picking it up next week). I'm really looking forward to shooting my daughter's wedding from dad's point-of-view. She's having it professionally shot, and I think I'll probably have enough to do with the wedding itself - but I'll be clicking away through the day!

I'll post some photos of the wedding when I get back (she's getting married in London).

I can really feel a rebirth in my hobby - the specs on the K20D look great, I chose it above the Canon 40D - I think the right decision. I'm also going to get into astro and macro photography too. I have a great telescope to try it on.

Graeme .

G'Day Graeme and welcome I am sure you will really enjoy the K20D.

Good to see another Aussie on here - I hope to see a few more from here in the wild west though.

Hi Cupic,
You have almost the same equipment as me, except a K20D, even your slingshot!
Thanks for the welcome.

Welcome to the forum Graeme.
There seems to be more and more Aussies about now.
The majority are from Melbourne as well ... and a good bunch of people too.

Looking forward to the wedding shots and the macro and astro work as well.
