Back after long hiatus

So after selling off all my Pentax gear a couple years ago, due to being focused on my career with little time for much else, the bug has bitten me and I'm back!
I was browsing eBay and gumtree (think Australian Craigslist) and I found myself a couple of cracking deals locally. An Fa28mm, da70 and sigma 150-500mm, which came to a total of about 650AUD. Not bad in my book.
So now I'm on the hunt for a cheap body to purchase so I can actually use them!
Thought I should re-introduce myself back to the forum as yet another Australian. Hailing from the gold coast.
It's been a long time, and I've missed this place. You guys (and gals) are a good bunch. It's good to be back

Great deal indeed! Welcome back. Why not treat yourself to a K-1?

Welcome back, I believe we do have one or two other Aussies about the place, so you shouldn't get too lonely.

Any idea of how to find out if there are any members near me? I'm located on the Gold coast, in Queensland. about an hour off from Brisbane. would be great to try and organize a photo walk, or just a chat and a coffee down the track. I've never actually seen another pentax shooter in the wild in my parts, its all nikon, canon, sony, fuji, or olympus around these parts!

Welcome back.

I had an FA 28, DA 70 and Sigma 150-500 in K-mount stolen recently. Anyone seen them?

(Just kidding.)
