I've been lurking around for a while and since I have decided on the K10D or it's successor I thought I'd join and start learning
I'm 63 years old and disabled so that I can't walk far enough or long enough to get very far from my truck. At this time I have a Leica V-LUX 1 which is an excellent camera for what it is but I'm finding myself wanting more, but I absoutely need the long zoom lens and IS.
I shoot mostly outdoors, landscapes, animinals, birds and the like. For some reason it's taken me about five years, a Panasonic FZ1, FZ20 and now the V-LUX1 to get comfortable enough with cameras to start wanting to upgrade to a DSLR.
I'm looking forward to enjoying the forum and hope I don't ask to many dumb questions.
