Hi from CapeTown In South Africa!!!

Hi Everybody!!!

Stumbled upon the PentaxForums while reading upon the K10D. I'm Looking at buying a second hand one now that the 200D and 20D has been released. Have seen the price drop quite rapidly round here.

I'm still on a old Contax 35mm, but since I felt the great "Feel" of the Pentax DSLR range and seen the features and quality, I just want to get myself a Pentax.

Reason for looking at the K10d is plainly because I'm on enrty level at DSLR I don't want to go and buy a K20 right away. (don't have that kind of money anyway).

Photography I'm interested in is, Landscape, Abstracts, People(weddings etc.) and some Visual impact stuff.

At the moment I'm a full time Sound and Video Engineer in Cape Town, but am looking at leaving this profession sometime in the future to start my own Photography studio and become a great photographer.

Well, thats me in a nutshell. Sure I'm gonna have a great time and learn alot from everybody here.!!!!

God Bless
Daniel J

Welcome Daniel,
You've found a great forum, not to mention a great camera. You will soon discover why we're "The Few, The Proud, The Pentaxians". As your first DSLR, the K10D is as close to Pro as you can get w/o spending a small fortune.
Cheers

Welcome indeed Daniel!

Here's your first inter-active good tip from the site:

The K200D now offers a rebate. $100 I think. That should sweeten the deal a bit!

Welcome!

Hi, Daniel! I'm new to the site as well. I actually have a good friend who lives with us from Jo-Burg. She's been with us for almost 2 years and her visa is about to expire. She has to go back home next month . We're hoping to get out there within the next few years to visit. SA is soooo beautiful!!

Looking forward to chatting with you.

Terri

hi daniel

Hi Danie or is that Daniel

I used to live in PE, went to Woodridge College, but now live in Oakville Ontario +- 40km west of Toronto.

I'm new to the site and have just recently bought a k200d. I'm going to the Churchill Rugby Cup this Saturday...please dont rain, and looking forward to trying out my camera for some action shots. Its a double header - Canada vs Argentina (Ag Shame) and Eng Saxons and Ireland.

Have fun with your purchase decision.

Cheers
