Hello fellow pentaxians

Hi there,

Have been reading this forum for a litlle while. So why not introduce myself...

You can call me Rakus.. From the Netherlands. A proud dad of 2 litlle kids, a 2 year old girl and 3 year old boy. 1,5 years ago a bought my first camera, a sony nex 6, and start shooting mostly my kids and dog. Been shooting with some canon FD lenses wich forced me to learn to take manual controlle of the camera.. I realy enjoyed it!! The lack of nice autofocus zooms(at a affordable price) made me look for a new camera...

This is where I met Pentax!! Since there is not very big pentax croud here in Holland, it was a litlle hard for me to find a good second hand K3.. But.. I'm now a proud owner of a K3 with a sigma 17-70 2.8/4.0 and a Tamron 70-200 2.8!!

I'm loving it!!

Here you can see some off my pic's

Nice to meet you all!!

Welcome from Chicago! I got to visit northern Netherlands (Naarden and Bussum area) nearly 20 years ago, I'd like to get back. I don't work for a Dutch company anymore, oh well.

Have fun, I'm sure you'll enjoy the new gear.

Welcome to the forum, I wonder which of these two is the easiest to photograph.
