Intro from Australia

Hello all,
This is my first post. Hope to have a better time than the somewhat volatile atmosphere on the English Pentax User site. Good to see some Aussies here, and friendly comments.
Currently, I am going through my mid-life crisis(43yrs old), deciding between spending more time on the mountain bike to get fit, or building a decent system of lenses for my K100D Super.(OK, I do lust after the K7). Hope to have many invigorating discussions with you guys.

Gear: K100 D Super, Sigma 18-55, Tokina 28-70 ATX f2.8, Sigma 70-300 APO, and a Tokina 80-400 if my english mate comes good.

G'day Sam.
Welcome to this fine forum mate!
There are a few of us scattered around the country logging on - you're in good company.

There's no reason why you couldn't kill two birds with one stone - mountain biking and photography - although I realise both are expensive hobbies...

If you're looking for a cost-effective way of buying good Pentax gear, you've come to the right place. But beware of this forum's marketplace - it's a risk factor for LBA (lens buying addiction).

All the best with both of those and don't be a stranger!

Welcome to the forums mate.

And if I'm not wrong, there's a few other members here from up Newy way or the Central Coast region.
