Hi from Perth Australia

Own a Pentax K-5ii with the 18-55mm lens. Bought it as a kit when it first came out, as an upgrade from an old pocket camera. Has had little use, so I've joined here to gain some knowledge, get some advice and hopefully kick start my hobby.

Cheers mike

Welcome the camera is fantastic the lens can be good mostly around 35mm.
I think to best learn/understand the Camera Use TAV mode with Auto Iso
