How do you do ?
I introduce myself, 42 years old, I have always been attracted to photography since I was a child. I loved souvenirs and images in general with film compacts cameras.
Then I really discovered the possibilities of slr cameras with an old Olympus OM1 which was offered by my uncle. I learned by myself to process and develop black and white films & photos in my parents bathroom at nights. In the same times, I discovered lenses, zoom and primaries, my favorite one was a 35mm f2 from Zuiko, perfect combo.
And I finally switched to digital in 2010 and bought a Pentax K5 because it was weather proof, compact size, and strong build. Sensor resulted very well on dxomark too. I still got it today and last week I added a K70, indeed I didn't see the interest to spend more and get the same image quality as a KP or something else.
My quiver of lenses is Tamron 10-24/Pentax 35 mm f2.4/ 50 mm f 1.8/ WR Pentax 18-55 f3.5/5.6 / and 70-300 sigma APO DG.
After few samples from the K70, no regret at all, very satisfied, a lot to explore with it from technical, photografical, and experimental points of view
And very nice to meet the forum !
Read you soon
