Long time lurker from Australia

Started Photography in the single digits with a Zenit-E that an uncle passed on to me because he found it to difficult to use (yeah I got 1 or 2 over exposures per roll)
But it gave me a good grounding in photography. I was also lucky enough to have parents into photography to the extent there was quite often a darkroom setup in the house.

Moved on to Pentax film cameras then a K10D it produced adequate photos but always put lenses back on film bodies looked through the viewfinder and dreamed.

Purchased a K-1 about a month ago, really happy with the feel of the camera.
