New member! Hello from New Zealand!

Hi guys!

Just got my first digital Pentax (which also happens to be my first DSLR) and I'm really keen to learn how to make the most of it!

I had been using an old Spotmatic F for a while and thought it would be a good idea to "upgrade" to a Silver K-1

I hope to learn a lot from you all so thanks in advance!

Check out the user map and add yourself to it. There is even a person in Palmerston north. I lived there a short time. A Kiwi here in New Orleans from Whaganui calls it what I Won't repeat but that gorgeous gorge. Anyway, welcome.
