after having read many posts and reviews on this site, time to register I guess.

I am from Germany. Long time ago when working as an interior designer I had started, my first camera was a Zeiss Ikon Stuttgart, all manual... and I mean really all was manual. Next came the first SLR, a Revuenon, cheap then, cannot even remember which lens. Then my first Pentax SLR, I cannot remember which one. Followed by a Canon A1, then by some chance I was able to get a Leica R4 with Summilux 50 1,4 and Elmarit 28 2,8, what a step.
When digital cameras came, I had to take the step and I came back to Pentax.

Currently using the K30, K5II and the K 01 for light traveling.
Lenses: many, but my favourites are DA35 macro limited, F50 1,7, A50 1,7 + 2,0 (super light and pretty small, so perfect for the K 01 and the Sigma 8-16. I had thought of converting my two Leitz lenses for Pentax, but am still hesitating, as I like the convenience of the A lenses, I don't mind about manual focus, particular when doing macro photos, manual focus is a must.

So, thats it for now, we just had a heavy storm over here, have to get out and repair a few things in the garden.
