Hello from Auckland, New Zealand.

Greetings from the summery southern hemisphere. I currently own a Pentax Spotmatic (approx 40 years old) and a Pentax K-7 with 18-55 WR lens that is about a week old.
I am impressed by the K-7 body build quality and features - it seems very much like the Olympus E-1 I had previously but is even smaller despite the larger sensor and the in-body stabilisation.
My main photographic interests are candid photography and outdoors activities (especially photos to accompany fishing articles for magazine publication) - hence my selection of a water resistant combination.

Thanks for the greetings - despite my shaky start with internal condensation, I am loving the K-7 for its "All Black" qualities of understated excellence.
