Hi from Belgium

Hello, I am Peter and I live in Bruges, Belgium.

20 Years ago,I had a Nikon ELII. Made lots of nice photos with it but didn't like,at that moment, the changing of lenses and the heavy weight. After this one, I had an analog. compact( Minolta ) with zoom, nice,but I missed the picture quality and great DOF of my SLR and lenses.

I entered the digital period with a Fuji S5500(S5000), witch I still find a great camera with excellent image quality. And 1 year ago, after 4 years Fuji, I wanted a DSLR.
I choose a Pentax k10D: great value for money, very good critics. After 1 year, never had doubts about my choice!

Each kind of photography gets my attention but I prefer macro and landscapes and I love black/white photography.
So I have the 18-55 kitlens for the landscapes and a Tokina for the macro's.Other prime lenses are in my mind .

Peter, Bruges, Belgium
