Hello from Finland


Two months ago I got my first DSRL, K200D + 18-55 + 50-200. Before that I have only HP R607, but I need something what could do what I like it should.

Why Pentax, I was thinkin to get Canon 1000D or Nikon D60 but luckily I got old M 40-80/f2.8-4 lens, so I start looking Pentax.
I went camera store, and it was there, my love, K200D. I'm very happy

Now gear is Great, user not. But I'm learning...

Hi and welcome!

Nice to see that old glass got you into Pentax. Have you considered adding more old glass? I've bought many from fellow Finns but also from British ebay and my favorite lenses are all almost as old as I am, if not older.

Where in Finland are you located exactly?

Hi and thanks

I'm from Kotka. Yes I'm looking some nice glass, prime telephoto or telephoto zoom. And maybe some 50/1.? and some 85 or so and...
But I have time, I'm just learning to use dsrl, and I want to be sure about what I need.
I got that old lens with broken MV-1, I was thinkin that I take focus screen from it to K200D.
Is it worth of?
