Hello from Northern Ireland

Hi all

Have been a keen enthuisast photographer for some years. Have always used Nikon but decided to sell all my gear and go over to the dark side and invest in a Pentax K-3. Only had it for a week but loving it so far.
Looking forward to learning from this great site...can already confirm that the lens review section has helped me decide on which lenses to invest in.

Many thanks

Welcome, depending who you talk to... some would say that your actually leaving the "Dark Side" to become a Pentax Jedi.
