Hi from Vancouver Island

I recently upgraded my K-r to the K1-ii. I was considering Nikon until I found Pentax was still in business and had a high-end full-frame body. This was a saviour as I would have had to start collecting lenses from scratch. I have a handful of lenses from M series to my most recent DFA 100mm f2.8.

I'm looking forward to learning how to better use my equiment and to share my photos with like-minded individuals.

Welcome to the forum.

A good choice for an upgrade - I`ve recently done the same

K-r is a neat little camera, but the upgrade to K-1ii is a massive step. Well done you!

Love your island, it has so much to offer and for me some very happy memories.

Welcome,

I also have fond memories of Vancouver Island, we stayed in Tofino and Victoria for a few days. Would love to go back. I also liked Vancouver as well (I've also been to Couverden in NL where the Vancouver family are said to originate from).

Hi and Welcome. We just loved Tofino for the wild life tours. We were so sad when we heard about the Leviathan tragedy
