Finland taking over here?

Hello everyone.

Been reading stuff here since I got my k10d in april, but didn't register until now.
It seems there are few Pentax users here from Finland, which is pretty odd as it seems they're only selling the C- and N-brands here in every corner. I'm not even sure if you can get Pentaxes anywhere in Finland...

Anyway, I've been really happy with the camera and so far I've been mainly using some old lenses as they're decent quality and supercheap.

My shots go to flickr, but have to check the gallery here as well and maybe post few shots as well.

believe it or not, I think Americans (such as myself) are the minority on this forum. its dominated by Canadian, Australian and Scandinavian users.

welcome to the Forums!

Welcome to the forum.

There are plenty of Americans here though. Just not as loud as the rest of us ...

And I'm surprised to hear/read that there are few scandinavians as I haven't really bumped in to almost anyone around here or in flickr. Not to mention the "real life"...

I also checked the Pentax availability here in Finland and you CAN actually get those DSLRs in few places but the prices are ridiculous. I guess most of the users got their cameras from abroad like me. I got mine for almost half the price. Hooray for the cheap dollar?
