Hello from Wollongong (Australia).

Hi everyone. I mostly shoot m43 just as a hobby, with mostly plastic and light lenses, and wanted something that could give me a little more resolution, handle bigger lenses, and OK, I was tempted by the Astrotracer possibilities, yet still have what I’m used to, and the K-70 ticked all the boxes.

It's proving to be an awesome camera.

Looking forward to seeing other people’s photos and hopefully sharing a couple of my own!

Welcome, and I hope you enjoy your time here in this community.

I spent a bit of time working in the 'Gong a few years back, and really enjoyed it - a very nice city

Hello and welcome from a semi-Australian (now living in Canada) and briefly ('04-'05) a former Wollongongian too. You should find plenty to photograph with your K-70, but you might want to take it over the Blue Mountains before you try out that astrotracer - bright lights, big city makes for s***ty stars.

Welcome, not from 'Gong, never been near it even, unlike all the rest of the replies it would seem.

Enjoy the forum from the Highlands of Scotland.
