Hi Matt, my homie!!!

I can't quite believe there is another PU reader in Sunny Saffron Walden! Great to meet you here I'll now be keeping an eye out for any GX20 users when I'm out and about, so if you get accosted by a weirdo with a K20D strapped to his hand, you know who it will be!

I should also add to MattWhittingtons comment about his informal survey ... Apart from my own one I have never seen another Pentax DSLR in the wild

Although speaking of unsual cameras a couple days ago at Duxford War Museum I saw an elderly couple (with quite unusual dress sense, almost goths ) each shooting with a Leica point and shoot

Hello Matt and welcome to the forum.
I've seen a fellow Pentax user in a hide at Frampton Marsh Nature Reserve.
The older I get the faster I was.

Hi Tim

You may accost me on the condition that you let me try your Tammy 17-50

You'll most likely spot me out and about in my black MR2 (see my avatar).

No problem I've only had the Tammy a few weeks (bought in the classified section on this site) so I'm still putting it through its paces, but so far I'm very impressed with it!

I'm sure I've seen your car around too, will keep my eyes peeled for it now

Matt, howzit!

You get two types of photographers... those who use PENTAX and those who want to!!

That's it!

Cheerio!
2x K10D bodies, 2x FA 28-200 3.8-5.6, DA 18-55, A 50 F2, 50mm Macro, 360 FGZ. Still saving for the 60-250 DA* Also have a Z10 35mm and a K1000 just for fun. IF PENTAX IS THE ANSWER, WHO CARES WHAT THE QUESTION IS...!
