Hi there from Rural Aus!

Hi there, I'm Abi and from rural Vic Australia! I've been playing with Pentax for about 3 years now, and love it!

Most of my equipment is either inherited or cleaned up from the cheap, as a young family isn't really conducive to having "all of the gear"!
That doesn't stop me though, I still love getting out into the morning sun, snapping photos of coffee, my kids, food and family!

Looking forward to chatting, learning more, and digging deeper in the pentax world.

G'day Abi, great to have you on board.
You have come to the right place, lots of friendly and helpful Pentaxians around here.
There might even be some PF folks around where you are, as you will find lots of Aussies around here.

Hi there from over the border in Adelaide. Are you rural west, north or east?

Pentax have lots of affordable older manual lenses to play with and with plenty of quality options.

I'm from Sunraysia...to answer your question lol!

I do agree, and have some older lenses that I LOVE, and am always on the hunt for them I've often been off and on again photography wise, as it all consumes me, and I do get very busy with the kids. Currently waiting for no. 3 to arrive any minute ha!

Hi Abi and welcome to the Forums. Kids take time but they also provide good subject material. Good to have another representative from Oz on board.

Long ago I lived at Barmera but now in Adelaide. Nice area with a variety of natural subject matter about.


What do you think of the 'Big Lizzie'?
