    Hi all.

    A new member here from Wellington New Zealand, I have had an interest in photography for the last 45 years starting at age 12 with pinhole cameras and developing B&W film. Over the years I have owned a number of SLR film cameras and lately a couple of digital point and shot models. Recently I bought my first DSLR, a Canon EOS 200D.

    I had been avoiding a DSLR as my trusty Pentax film camera and lens were still in the cupboard gathering dust and I new that once I went digital I would be in "boots and all". No surprise the that the last few months have seen more expense.

    Anyway hello from the "shaky isles".

    Shane

    Thanks for the offer Ben but I have retired the camera body and managed to find adapters so that I can claim pretence of using them with the Canon.

    Pentax lenses on a Canon?? :aiwebs_016: :BangHead: :345:

    I have a nice ME Super SE, and K1000 that would put them to good use. :allteeth: I'll even let you pay the shipping to the US. :aiwebs_016: I'm just nice that way. :allteeth:
