Hi! Pentaxian of 3 years finally joining the forums.


I'm a hobbyist from Cologne (Germany), but currently living in Leiden (Netherlands).

My first camera that could do more than just point & shoot was a Canon PowerShot G9. When it suddenly broke down in 2012,
I decided to use this as an excuse to upgrade to a DSLR. I was looking at Canon initially but after some research got the Pentax K-5, which is still my main camera.

After some intensive use and a lot of learning, my PhD thesis got in the way of photography, but this year I got back into it. Not only with the K-5 but also on film. I have a K1000
and - for only about a week now - an original model 645.

If you're interested I have some pictures online on Flickr.

Welcome to the Forums. But be careful - this place can consume as much time as PhD.
