Hi From Sydney Australia

Hi everyone. My name is John Tam. I am a newbie to your wonderful site and new to photography even at my late stage in life. I've always wanted to con tinue with photography which I started some 50 years ago about 10 or 12. I drop it then and have recently discovered it and find it as fascinating now as I did then. Wondering what I have missed. I'm also a newbie to Pentax after reading millions of articles on cameras from digital to SLRs.
Hope to interact with you all in due course.

John

Welcome to the forums and you journey back into photography. You're coming into it at a great time with excellent gear available. There are lots of Ozzie's here. Looking forward to some pictures and posts.

Welcome to the forum. I'm in a similar situation, and in addition the nice gear that seems to be proliferating these days, I've spent an order of magnitude less time and learned more thanks to sites such as this one than 13 years ago when I bought my first (and still only) camera. If, among those million articles, you haven't happened upon Ken Rockwell's site, I recommend a trip.

It's not Dostoevzky, but very informative and agnostic of brand preference for the most part. The best articles I've found actually eschew the importance of gear entirely.

Cheers,

Daniel

Welcome John.
You're in good company here.
Lots of Aussies, and lots of newbies here all sharing a passion for photography.
There's been quite an influx since K-7's release.
Feel free to ask questions here.
All the best.

Hey there fellow Sydneyite

Hey John,

Glad to know there is a fellow Sydneysider on board. I've also just joined the forum and looking to get more information about this wonderful world of Pentaxia! What's your tool of choice? Maybe we should photo jam together some time. See you around.

G'day,

How did you go with the races? Which lenses did you use? Got any sample photos? Interested to see how you went because I am off to Phillip Island in October to watch the Australian MotoGP and will be taking my K-7 to test it out!

Welcome to the forum by the way!

Cheers!

Welcome from Kangaroo Island. Gee there's a funny twang in the air tonight! Anyone bring a barbie along? Pull up a keg, mate, and make yourself at home.
