Hey there, I have just bought the K3-ii after years of harassment from Dad (I was previously a Nikon girl). Some of you will know my Dad as malleeboy on the forum.
I spend my year living and working in ski resorts between Australia and Colorado, USA, and I am focusing on ski and snowboard photography, along with travel and landscape. I am looking forward to this new challenge, and sharing photos with you all. Cheers!

Hi alpinegirl. Welcome to the Pentax forums. You will really appreciate the weather sealing on the K-3II. Teamed with a WR lens and all will be good.
Looking forward to seeing your snow photographs.

2nd Generation

Curious to know how many 2nd or 3rd generation Pentaxians are on the forum, I can think of Ole & Adam...anyone else?
Heres a little snap (film, scanned) of the alpinegirl (who was born in flat, low rainfall country with no mountains in sight), but this probably gives a little insight as to what was to come

Welcome to the forums. I have a K-3II also. It produces images with nice detail/color and the AF is excellent among many other nice features.
