Hello from England!

I've been visiting this site for about ten years, and found it very interesting, especially the reviews.
I started with an ME Super and 50mm F1.7 in 1981, which was in constant use all over the World until the late 1990s.
I then had a K7, followed by K5iiS, and for the last couple of months a silver KP. The K5iiS still gets used occasionally.
Have a selection of lenses, but my favourite is a new Pentax 100mm f2.8 WR Macro, which is often used with a Metz 15 MS-1 macro flash.
Walkabout lens is a Sigma 17-50mm f2.8.

Hi Phil

Welcome to the friendly forum, but you know that already. I upgraded from a K5 to KP and the poor K5 never gets used anymore. Would love to see some shots with the macro and KP. I might end up getting one as well
