Hi all from holland!

Hi All,

Just wanted to introduce myself - I'm Philip (Flipside to my buddies) living in Holland. Always have found this spot a treasure trove of information since i started digging deeper intp the photography hobby. I started out with my dad's old ME, but moving into the digital age i got a K5, which i just love. In particular shooting with his old Takumars (50/1.4 and 135/2.5). I just really appreciate the thought that those lenses have travelled the world with him and have seen so much more than i have (though i'm quickly catching up..).
Being an engineer i particularly like the technical aspects of photography and photo gear - looking forward to joining the tech talks here...

All the best,

Dear Philip, welcome in the digital place!
I am Theophilos from that famous country with the rich history and the hundreds of problems nowadays Greece!
I am one of hottest Pentax funs, in my country!
Don't forget to use your old ME some times!
I think that we need to have some photos in film format.
Have a nice time here!!!

Welcome from Chicago!
The K5's sensor really has a film-like quality if you get the exposure right. I'm still using mine, as a second body now.
