Back to the fold :)


Looks like I am coming back to the Pentax world. I strayed a little for a while.

Late 1970's - started with a Pentax MX camera way back, then had two bodies, one for colour one for B&W. Used the MX's until about 2004. Tried a ME for a while as well but did not like the electronics.

2004 got a Pentax Option 330, a 3mp brick that cost $1250 AUD, ouch !

~ 2008 Got a Pentax Optio W10 waterproof camera, nice little camera, tough and easy to use.

Then strayed into Canon DSLR's, a 600D. It was good for my needs at the time, but the focus was woefull, no matter what lens I used.

NOW- looking for a K20D. Mostly to use an old Sigma 600mm mirror lens that I have. I have a small compact for most snapshot photos, but need the big lens for distance work. Then I will gradually get some old K mount primes to use.

Welcome to the forum, that would have been no doubt the "cutting edge" technology then.
