Hello from Wales

Hi all, found this site while searching for lens reviews and decided to sign up as there seems to be a lot of useful information.

A bit of background: I started with an old K1000 back in the mid 1990s, then via a P30 and P30T until it became hard to get film developed. Earlier this year I finally bought a DSLR, a Pentax K-m as it looked to be the best starter DSLR and being able to use any K mount lens appealed. It's a great piece of kit, the only snag is that I now keep looking at lenses!

So far I have a couple of 28-80mm zooms, a 35-80mm and a 100-300mm as well as the kit lens. As I mostly shoot landscapes and motorsport the mid-range telephotos are handy.

Hi Dangermouse, welcome to the forum.

Where abouts are you? I'm in North Wales, living in Towyn and working in Llanberis.

Hi Woodworm, I'm in Mid Wales near the Elan Valley (which is where I usually end up when trying a new lens).

Thanks Ash - I will dig up some of my photos to post, however I feel rather embarrassed by my efforts when I see the quality of work here!
