Greetings from Switzerland

Hi, i'm Cyril from Switzerland.
I started with photographing in 2003 with a *ist D.
I decided to buy this Camera, because it was the smallest APS-C DSLR at this time and
for Landscape and Macro i didn't need the fast focus or continuous shooting ability that other brand offered and still over.
I also like it, that Pentax has a good reputation and is manufacturing interesting products, but is not that match in the focus as other brands.

A few weeks ago i decided to devote myself more to photographing again, after i rarely did so for some years.
After checking my gear, i considered to add a new camera to my current K10D.
Determining between the K-1 II or K-3 III, i decided, to try out the Fullframe format and bought a K-1 II.

Here i hope, i can find some new inspirations, get advices, or give some, and sharing a few of my photographs.
