greetings from Canada

Hey everyone - I'm a recent Pentax convert on a journey to rediscovery my passion for photography. I recently sold all of my sony mirrorless gear (never got used to the whole EVF thing, lens are way too expensive) and got myself a k70 and a bunch of lenses. Never been happier. I also shot Canon but their equipment is too heavy for me to carry around in a backpack all day. Hoping to learn and share with all of you around here.

While Iím not the welcome committee. Welcome.

Photography is a fantastic endeavour. While I donít think the gear is always the most important thing I hear you about lighter is better.

Welcome to the forum, one of the best lightweight primes I've come across recently is the FA 135mm f/2.8 it's really underrated (and cheap and light!).
