G'day Simon.
Not meaning to chase you around, I just commented on your photo post.
Welcome to the forums.

I'm sure you will learn a lot here, I certainly have in my relatively short tenure so far.

Welcome Simon.
There are lots of Brisbaneites on the forum.
There's even a SEQ Pentax users group - see here: - SE Queensland

Enjoy your K200D, and your journey capturing the world with it.

Thanks for the welcome everyone

Yeah i love pentax camera's, i first started playing with them in the 90's when my dad had a mz slr, then in high school we used old school pentax slr's in photography class which i loved, then after school i bought myself a pentax mz-60 + a few lens then just over a year ago i bought the k200d and love it!
Ive noticed most people in oz mainly use canon's, ive tried using some but i just dont like them, i dont know why, they can take some great pics, i just feel really at home with pentax

On another note, i just bought a hoya r72 infrared filter online Im looking foward to giving the whole infrared scene a try
