Hello from the Wirral, UK

Thought I should probably introduce myself to my fellow Pentaxians - Im Neal and I'm in the UK - sunny Wirral (sometimes anyway..)

Been a pentax user with k30t since the late 90's, and then never looked at any alternatives! - I mean, why would you? when you can still use all these lenses.

Bought a used K100d super after realising compacts just weren't adequate anymore - probably 10 years ago now....still use it a little (I see no reason to upgrade for more pixels really as long as I don't expect to clip photos..)

Having said that, I found a fantastic pentax Q a year ago - and I just had to have it. Its small, its light, the lenses are tiny and its fun to take photos again - it gets used much more frequently than my DSLR nowadays. Its more than adequate for my if only I could find a Q7 or Q-S1 to go with my recently purchased 08 lens.....

Pentax q 08 recently purchased - Thought it would be a good for taking interior photos of my completed projects ...being a self employed architect (tried the fish eye, but not having much luck with the focusing!)

Welcome Neal.

The best luck I've had with the Q + 03 Fisheye is to use the punch in focus by hitting the 'ok' button then manually focusing on the most distant object in the frame.
