Smeggy's new Photography Forum!

It's along story, but there's been some upheavals in the Pentax Photography Community over the last few months, so I ended up starting my own last week.

Everyone's welcome to join of course. Not restricted to Pentax snappers :)

http://www.thepentaxforum.co.uk/

You may recognise the layout of course. :)

Knives in the back and pistols at dawn in the Pentax Photography Community eh?

Well I suppose photographers are a funny bunch rather than the nerds everyone expects. :D

Though having looked at some photo forums over the years I don't remember much aggro.

Was having a nose around the other day. Noticed the link in your signature.

I'm not much of a snapper, Pentax or otherwise I'm afraid :(

I did actually post a thread about these on smeggy's a few years ago, but worth a revisit, they are amazing!
