Hi from cold northern Sweden

Hi there. Thought I'd register since this seems like a interesting & helpful forum. I'm some guy from the very frozen north of Sweden, pretty new to photography in general, even though I've always owned a camera of some sort ever since I was 7 or so I never really cared for photography as "art" until a couple of years ago. Used to shoot a digital Nikon P&S and then an Olympus OM-1 which I still pull out every now and then (I wish I could use OM glass in K mount...)

This April, though, I got an awesomely great deal on the K100D Super kit, not so long after it was made "obsolete" by the K200D -- I like staying a year or two behind the technology curve for economical reasons -- and it's become a very good friend since then. I'm very happy with my choice.

The thing I enjoy most about Pentax' approach to their products is they seem to be geared towards the photo ENTHUSIAST first and foremost. I love the idea of being able to use every Pentax interchangeable lens ever made on my K100D, and I like how they seem to cram more fun and innovative features into their bodies than C&N. My latest acquisition is the DA 40 Limited which seems like an extremely solid lens so far.

Here's a random selection of some of my shots I like, all taken with the K100Ds and 18-55 kit lens:

Pleasure to meet you all!
