New from Norway

Hi to you all,

greatings from a newbee, have had a few camera's before but was just fooling around. Started with Z-70 some years ago, bought it from a friend along with 2 lenses, an 18-55mm an 50-210mm and an 2x converter.
Finaly i 2007 I bought an 200D kept the other gear and was very happy with it. November last year disater struck some ashole broke in, stole the gear and as a bonus torched our place.
Since today I,m the proud owner of a K20D, a 18-55 AL-WR lens, some distance rings. And no idea where to start.
Well, I'm off, will fiddle around with my new toy

Welcome to the forums, you'll find lots of information here and plenty of helpful shooters. It sucks about having your place torched, that's aweful. I hope you've recovered from that.

Enjoy the K20D, it's a great camera.

Welcome here.
Sorry for your loss.

The K20D is a fine tool.
Start with shooting the subjects you particularly like.
