Love my Pentax gear! Perth Western Australia

My father was a huge Pentax user and he introduced me to photography and the Pentax brand. I love the build quality of this brand, the photo quality and have gradually built up a collection of lenses for both wildlife and concert events. I owe a lot to my dad for teaching me the essentials. I enjoy the creative side of photography. I currently use a K3 after starting out on the earlier models in the K series. Iím very happy with the results of combining the da* lenses with the K3 and K5 and also got great results on the K20D. Also love the the TAV setting the Pentax brand has which has been very useful. Iím looking forward to using this forum.

great to have another Aussie joining the global Pentax community, and from the very nice city of Perth.
I miss Perth!
Hope to see images of Perth city in future.

Welcome from Adelaide. My brother lived in Mandurah for over 30 years before recently moving up to Perth. Would like to get over there again but with Kim Jong McGowan in charge of the hermit state, who knows when that will be!

Did you father have any/many manual focus lenses that you can access?

Welcome to the forums from Maine, USA.

My father taught me a lot in the beginning but I found the Pentax brand on my own. :{)>
