Hi from Brisbane Australia

Hi everyone
I embraced B&W in the 60's using a spotmatic and even built a darkroom onto my house to cater for my hobby. After a 30yr break I am now retired and travel extensively and take landscapes. After starting with Panasonic 4\3rds then a K30 with a Tamron 10-24 UWA, I now use a DA 12-24 on a K50 which I reckon is the ultimate kit for landscapes.

Welcome, there are a lot of AU people here. There are also film lovers here, so get out the Spotmatic.

Hi from Melbourne and welcome. I too started with a Spotmatic. Recently upgraded from K30 to K3 and loving it. Strangely the K3 manual is a third of the size of the K30 so I really enjoy the K3 forum here as there's so many helpful tips here.
