Greetings From Central England

Just a brief hello to the forum! Hello forum! I used to live in the States somewhere between Boston and Lincoln. Now I live in the UK somewhere between Boston and Lincoln! I already visit the site constantly to read lens reviews so I figured I may as well join and maybe I can give something back. Anyway, it's nice to meet you all!

-Duane.

Welcome to the forum. Once you start with the lens reviews there is no going back.

Welcome to the forum, I wonder if there are any other places in the world where you could still live somewhere between Boston and Lincoln, apart from the two you know.

Thanks for the welcomes'! I've done a bit of comparing the Tamron 70-300 and Sigma 70-300mm APO and the Pentax FA 100-300mm (f/4.7-5.8) so I hope to make a readable post about my findings when I'm not so swamped with work!

Kerrowdown, wouldn't it be funny if the next place I moved to had a Mr. Lincoln living to one side and and a Mr. Boston living on the other?

I assume that's Scun-thorpe! Sensitive censor system here! Not so sunny today, sadly. Hopefully a bit nicer tomorrow!

Zuger Kirschtorte very nice indeed! We can get Lincolnshire Poacher cheese over here too, that is also very nice.

I've not had that, but I do love a good cheese.. I may just have to pick some up later! I also enjoy a good Black Forest gateau, so I expect I would really like Zuger Kirschtorte!

Welcome from me ...in the North.
I`m new around here myself.
Be careful though I`ve already bought another Pentax lens.

Heh Michael, what lens did you acquire? I have only primes up to now. Am contemplating a 100mm WR or a 200mm, cannot decide.

There's a good deal on the PENTAX D FA 100mm f2.8 macro (non-WR) right now at Curry's/Dixons/PC World: 249.97 link Don't know where they ship to, though.
