Hello everybody

After a few months of reading some of the forums on this website, and owning Pentax gear, I have decided to play a more active role on this website.

I have started my photography way owning a Nikon D70 and having a lot of fun with it. Afterward, I decided to upgrade and bought a D700 along with a bottom of a bottle, stating the word "Sigma" on top, because of some financial reasons. This combination was heavy, expensive and unsuccessful.

I decided to return to the aps-c camp, and seeking the best compromise between the size, weight and image quality, I stumbled upon the Pentax K-7.

I hope that I'll continue to have as much fun reading and writing on this website, and also shooting Pentax.

An opening gift is attached.

Welcome to the forum and hope you enjoy your time here.
The K-7 will hopefully live up to your expectations, although it would be a tough match from your D700 experience.
Indeed a nice landscape to introduce yourself.
Look forward to your contributions here.

The k-7 exceeds my expectations so far, the main reason is the availability of a reasonably priced, good optics (I use the 16-50 and 55-300 lens). Furthermore, it's a fun camera to use (something that isn't specified and measured on the reviews).

BTW, thanks for all the welcomes,
Nitzan.
