Hello from Sweden

I'm a long time user of Pentax, started back in the days with a Spotmatic - still have some of the lenses and using them... Latest camera is a K-70, was thinking of a K-1 but took it because of lighter and more compact camera - love the DA-40mm XS together with the K-70 since it fits in the pocket and gives great pictures.

You must have big pockets! From what I hear of the K-70, it’s a good choice.

There are many members here who started with Pentax in the film era, myself included. Anyway, welcome to Pentax Forums from Tasmania, Australia.

Hi, Stelo, from another Swede living in Skåne! I'm in the northeast, 15 k's from Hässleholm.
I'm also a long time Pentax user. Maybe not quite as long as you, I started with a Program A in 1985. Digital since 2005.
A warm welcome to the forum! A lot of helpful people here, should you ever need it.

And welcome from another K70 shooter! Wonderful camera, although it doesn't fit in my pockets, it does fit my hand perfectly! Enjoy it!

Thank you - to be quite honest it only fits in my pocket with a 40mm F2.8 XS lens on it but that is also a favorite lens.
