G'Day from Oz

Evening all,

I got pointed this way by my mate Adrian.
The name is Jason and I recently upgraded my K100d with a Samsung GX20 (K20D).
Thus far a just have the kit Samsung 18-55, and the kit Sigma 18-55 and 55-200.
I'll be handing down the K100d to another mate, she'll have a half decent camera for when his kid arrives in a couple of months
Still not sure which 18-55 to keep (thoughts?)

I've had a few false starts at this photography caper. My Father was right in this, but lack of time has prevented me in the past. So i've finally booked myself into a beginners DSLR course at the local community centre which starts next month

Any ways, just wanted to say G'day!

Welcome to the forum, I'm sure you'll get plenty of use out of you Samsung AKA K20D as it is an excellent camera. Even though I bought the Pentax K-5 I still use my K20D for various shots.

Welcome, and g'day to you too, Lurch.

Your mate Adrian has done you a favour. I'm sure you'll get great value from your GX20. As for the kit lens, all I can say is that, if I hadn't subsequently bought the DA *16-50, I'd still have 18-55 because it was a good, inexpensive, little, lightweight walk-around short zoom lens! (Now I've got a great, expensive, big, heavy one instead).

Enjoy your time here.

Cheers
Rob

Thanks for the welcome guys
I also figured it was worth making a donation, I know what its like running a forum like this as I run one myself.
To whoever is in charge; job well done. I might have to pick your brain sometime about some of the vBulletin mods youre running

G'day Jason.
The forum webmaster is Adam (and goes by that username) if you wanted to get in touch with him.
Enjoy this fine forum and your GX20.
Keep the Samsung 18-55.

Quick Q.
What can I not get my signature to show up?
I've gone right thru the User Settings (and knowing where vBulletin usually puts it) - and can't get it to show.
Is it a 'after X posts' thing?

*never mind* got it
