G'day from Adelaide, South Australia

Hi All,

I've been a Pentax user for 20 years... longer if you count my Mum's ME Super and 50/f1.4 (which Dad left in a taxi on holidays in Sydney and got replaced by a Z1, which was never quite the same).

I've had a K10D with a Sigma 18-200 for a few years now and been underwhelmed by it. My brother in laws Nikon D70 with the kit lens always seemed to produce more vibrant images, so a month ago, after a lot of reading here and elsewhere, and with the excuse of our first born arriving and the need to have some really nice photos, I splurged on my first Pentax glass.. a DA70mm/f2.4 Limited.

Wow.. I've only had it a couple of weeks but the wife has already been brought up to speed on the "LBA" :| This is going to get expensive.....

Welcome in Nick.

Quell the LBA by buying cheap, but good, M42 mount glass like Takumars. They are MF but are great bang for buck.
