Hi guys,
I've just joined the Pentax forum. My first Pentax was a Spotmatic I bought in the late 1960's. I now have my fifth model, a K-7. By far the best Pentax I've owned. I'm still coming to grips with it. Although its Spring here, the weather has been lousy with snow blocking major highways. I can't wait to get out and use the K-7

regards

Duckie

Hi Duckie!!

Whereabouts in NZ are you? One of my friends has emmigrated there a couple of years ago, lives in Tuakau.

I'd love to go there.
Getting there! Thanks to you guys

Snow on the ground---perfect. Get out there and show all us in the Northern hemisphere what snow is like.
Welcome to the forum and have fun
