Hi everyone

Hi everyone,

I'm new to PentaxForums.
I would like to quickly introduce myself. I'm a French guy who lives near the Atlantic ocean. My passion for photography started ten years ago. I've experienced several system, been in Sony and Nikon lands to finally stay with Pentax. I own a K3 and 3 lenses (16-85mm WR, 100 macro and 300mm + TC 1,4x). I like also Olympus OMD EM1 and have the 40-150mm f2,8.
I really like the color rendition of the Pentax. It's really awesome.
I'm more an outdoor photographer, and like insects and animals in general.
I write a blog that allows me to display my photos.
I hope that one day I will participate to a wildlife project as a photographer.

Bye !

Benoît

Welcome!

Not a bad little setup, that. Wide to short tele zoom, mid and long tele primes... if the 100 macro is the DFA WR version, I own it and it's excellent. And if you need the flexibility of a fast zoom above the 80mm level, you have the Olympus.

Hi pathdoc, yes it's the DFA WR 100 macro. I still need to think about the Ultra Wide lens. I've already tried the Sigma 8-16mm, and while it's certainly not a bad lens, I returned it, mostly because of the aperture. Quite slow and I'm not found of using tripods. I'm lurking on the 7-14mm f2,8 at Olympus but the price is quite steep. Any clue on a good UWA Lens for my K3 ? Regards.

Welcome, plenty to photograph with the Atlantic, especially when she's angry.
