Hi from Oslo, Norway.

Hi everybody!

I'm saving for my first dslr, and it's going to be a k-7.
I've been registered here a long month now, mostly reading lens-threads, in order to figure out which lens(es) to start with. I'm choosing pentax for the primes, the compactness, the value-for-money, many small details, the whole package

This is my first post/thread. I'll post more when the camera is in my hands.

Best regards,
Fredrik.

(Oslo, Norway)

I've got quite a collection going that I can base my advice off of

Thank you for a nice response Adam! I feel welcome.
I've gotten answers to all my wonderings so far with the search-function. Great forum, and I especially enjoy the lens threads due to their postings of wonderful photos. Inspirational.

I'm quite decided to go for the 15 and 35 ltd's as my two lens setup. -And the wr-kit-lens for the rainy days. It'll be FL-luxury for me, as I'm used to only one FL on my compact (Sigma DP1).

Welcome in Fredrik. Sounds like you will have a good normal to wide range with your lenses.

I've been having a little look at the Sigma DP1 lately. How do you find it?

Thanks eaglem!

And thanks fractal. About the dp1:
I like my dp1 very much, due to the fantastic IQ. In good light, that is. You have to accept it's limitations if you want to live with this camera. In low light, you should like grain, convert to black&white, and enjoy manual focus (it works). I do. You must sacrifice some speed and handiness. And you must shoot raw. It's not a P&S, and you are in control of what the camera does. No cheesy scene-modes here. For $500 it was an IQ-bargain for me
Here are some samples from me: fredrikj's Photos

The dp1 showed me that I'm capable of taking photos that I actually think is good. It got me hooked. So now I want to photograph more, everywhere, in dark, in light, and not wait for the camera to process. More buttons, more control and customizations. Soon, tax return will fullfill my dslr-dream! I'm going to be a Pentaxian. I can hardly wait...
