Hello from France

Hi
just joined, but have often looked at the site which I find helpful and informative.

I recently bought a K50 with the 18-55WR (kit version) and 35mm f2.4. In the past I used Pentax SLRs and still have a P30n and MZ5n complete with non-pop-up flash which I haven't got round to fixing as I don't use film any more. My old zooms, sadly, suffer from fungus, so I'm left with a 50mm f2 and some old Praktica lenses (oh, and a 2Xteleconverter by Vivitar). My 28-80 A lens still exists but I always hated it because it is so clunky and I'm so clumsy that it kept getting bumped into things.

Digital photography has been mostly with bridge cameras so this is my first DSLR.

Originally from the UK but now living in 'south-west' Brittany (Finistère), France. I look forward to joining in, and asking lots of dumb questions.
Oh, photography-wise, strictly amateur



regards
Pete

Hi wtlwdwgn - thank-you for your welcome. Will get round to adding some, but they're nothing special I'm afraid. So far I've just been testing and doing the micro-adjustment (got some nice pics of the warranty card, though!)
