greetings from Finland

Hi all

I guess I'm one of those stuck with Pentax gear for decades Slowly warming up my photography hobby after the busiest years with small children. In the previous life I had a small personal photo lab with a b/w enlarger in the bathroom, a Pentax LX and a motley crew of manual PK glass. In the recent years I have switched completely over to digital and AF gear (I'm too slow to get sharp pics of those darn kids with MF).

Jarmo

My current Pentax gear is listed below. I'm thinking of upgrading to a K-3 II or a second hand K-5. Perhaps also some more focal length for bird shooting

K10D
Pentax smc DA 18-250mm F3.5-6.3
Tamron SP AF 10-24mm F3.5-4.5 Di II LD Aspherical (IF)
Sigma 50mm f1.4 EX DG HSM
Tamron SP AF 70-200mm F2.8 Di LD (IF)

Welcome aboard, please tell me you kept this great gear set up... as lenses can be happily "recycled" onto modern day Pentax DSLR's.

Oh, I was quite happy with MF before and did keep those in use with my late K100D for a long time. But alas, the last of that lot has been sold... I only miss the LX, as my lenses were somewhat low-endish (not all, I loved the A 50/1.7 but the Sigma has now replaced it)

Welcome!

I've never used the A 50 1.7, but I got the Sigma EX 50 f1.4 just last week to replace an M 50 f1.4 with a loose front element. And I have to say, it's a truly impressive piece of glass.

And here, have my LX too. It's a little more beat up than KD's

Aye you think she could be a little better colour coordinated than that and have used black gaffer tape.

It's like a LX wardrobe dysfunctional day.
