Hi all. I have been a Pentax user since my father bought me an ME way back in the mid seventies when on a holiday in Singapore. At the time the price of cameras in Australia were very high due to prohibitive import taxes. Times have changed and buying a pentax online in Australia is very attractive. I currently use a K5 and since buying the Pentax 100mm macro I have been sold on prime lenses and now have most of the limited lens. I love the 40mm and as I have the 100 macro I cant justify getting the 35 mm limited. The next lens I get will most likely be the 70mm. In the meantime I have to decide when I will upgrade to the K3 hopefully with a good price reduction as the K3 II comes on the market) or go for broke and get the K3 ii. I will just have to wait until the reviews of the new camera come out.

Thanks for the welcome fellow Pentaxians. It's certainly exciting times for Penax users and I can only be thankful that we have the Pentax Forums dedicated to our passion. Before I discovered this site I had to rely on other sites that gave very little coverage of Pentax gear.
