John from Eastern Oregon

I recently found this forum, and I am looking forward to participating. I bought my K10D in April, and I think that I have probably taken more pictures since then than I ever did with film, even after buying my first (and only) Spotmatic 38 years ago.

I have tried the old 55mm lens out with the K10D, and it is just as sharp as ever, probably better than any of my other lenses.

Since April, I have acquired an old Sigma 400mm f5.6 and a Tokina AT-X 24-200. This has been a really nice lens, and very useful.

Good to be here,

Welcome John! That's beautiful country you reside in. Hope you post some scenic photos. I left Corvallis, Oregon almost 20 years ago and miss it very much.

Welcome John... I too look forward to some scenic shots from your neck of the woods.. I left salem, 38yrs 7months and 5 days ago... I'll be back. My sister lived in Bend before the Cali's all moved in. I was there a while back and did not recognize the area.

I am a newbie here myself, welcome ....

Thank You

Thanks for all your kind welcomes to the forum. I don't have much posted on line yet, but I intend to keep adding as I go. Just so you remember what you can see in Oregon, here is a shot of Multnomah Falls that I took in July.
