Greetings from India

Hello all! I am a new Pentaxian. Have recently acquired a Pentax K1 and the 50 and 100mm macros, and am amazed by the setup! My first FF camera, and coming from a Nikon, it wasn't much of a learning curve. I am hoping to learn from this vast and talented community, as well as give some snippets of information that I possess to help other newcomers like me.

Hope to see you all in the forum's very soon! Cheers!!

Welcome from Chicago!
The 100mm macro lenses are truly spectacular.

welcome

may I suggest you take a look at the Pollinators in Action thread, perhaps it might give you some inspiration with your macro lenses:

Pollinators in action - PentaxForums.com

#136 is an effort of mine using the SMC Pentax-D FA 100mm F2.8 Macro + K 3

we eagerly are looking forward to any photos you choose to post

Oh these are great! I have been a bit busy recently, but will surely put my lenses to the test this weekend and post pictures!

Hello Puneet! I am in Mumbai. The weather here this past week has made it difficult to venture out much, what with all the rain and humidity. BUt will surely try to get out this weekend if all goes well!
