G'day from Australia

Well, I suppose I am an official Pentaxian now.
Just got a K-s2 from BH and now also a 40mm/2.8xs.
Plenty other stuff already.
One tip for Australia: the 40mm 2.8xs is just $169 + post.
This lens is suddenly becoming expensive everywhere else.

Welcome, that's a good enough reason for me.

Leicalikers is nicer. Leicaphiles sounds too close to pedophiles.

No, it doesn't, not if you speak English properly. Say the word Leicaphile out loud, it is distinctly different from the word pedophile.

I said it sounds too close !

Leica-liker ......Leicaphile.........Like-a-phile..........Like-a-(pedo)phile !

Definition-phile:

combining form
denoting a person or thing having a fondness for a specified thing.

So Phile means to like something.

Leica, sounds like "Like-a". So you can't like-a-like ! ............but you can Leica-like. Leica is apparently pronounced Layka. The ENGLISH speaking world mispronounce Leica as Like-a when it should be pronounced Layka.

Potato Patata ! HEY ! I'm not a Layka-liker anyway thats why I make a joke on a mother-in-law.
