Can't join enough Pentax forums, particularly those based in NZ
I've been a Pentax use since 1975 when I bought a second hand Spotmatic with the 50/1.4. Still have the camera and was overjoyed to learn a few years ago that Pentax were making digital slr that I could still use that old lens on
Bought the K100D new from a local camera shop. It was the last Pentax slr they ever stocked. New Zealand support for the marque is pathetic. No wonder the canikon crew rule the roost when buyers can never sight a Pentax...
Luckily the local auction scene is reasonable so the lens acquisition process is well under way
The highlight of my year is the annual Boxing Day motorbike races.
The Old K100D was getting a bit frustrating for that project. Mainly the small buffer and slow focus.
So I risked all and picked up a second hand K-7 that has been very good.
Lenses for the bikes has developed too. I started with an M200/4, then went to a sigma 70-300 as you do.
Gave the Sigma to a mate and now have the excellent DA55-300
Have toyed with the thought of a K-5. The better iso and DR would be nice
