Hello from Brighton!

Hello all, it's strangely terrifying sitting here writing my first post, it feels like the first day at a new school. I'm a keen (but very much amateur) photographer and I am currently in my second year of college studying the International Baccalaureate. This is my first step into the Pentax world having come from a line of Sony NEX cameras which (although brilliant) left me wanting for more control and flexibility over how I was shooting.
So I must admit, i'm not yet the proud owner of a Pentax camera despite having used them at various points, but I hope to be one very soon. I've fallen in love with the K5iis and am keeping my eyes peeled! watch this space.

Hi and welcome!

The K-5iis is a great choice, it is considered one of the best Pentax DSLR's and is fast becoming a classic, you won't be disappointed if you can find a nice one that's been well looked after.


Some cameras, some lenses, some bits 'n' bobs
