Hello all, have been looking in on the forum for a while now
after someone pointed me towards it. Have only just moved to
a full digital slr last week, so decided it was time to join.

Have moved from a canon G9 to a K200D so be kind as still getting
to grips with it....

anyway enough for now and again Hello all!
Be kind, I'm a beginner...

Thanks, yeah most of my mates have canon, but having used
a pentax (well a samsung gx10) with a vintage lens on it,
it just seemed to feel a lot nicer in the hand....

no better way to find a new camera than a test drive

Mate, start clicking that K200D! You should be off to a flying start with it after your time with the G9.
