Nice to be here.

I started photography with my Petri Color 35 in the early 70's, moved on to my Contax 139 Quartz with the beautiful Zeiss 50 f1.4 (Yashica FX-3 Super 2000 2nd body) in the early 80's, then the Nikon N70 with the 24-120 in the 90's. I've had a number of 35mm point and shoots along the way as well as my Loreo Stereo and Poloroid pinhole.

Then came digital, with a bunch of point and shoots, the latest my Canon SD800 IS. I choose my cameras by lens and when I heard about the new Pentax 16-50 and 50-135 lenses earlier this year, I decided this was where I would dive into the DSLR world.

I've had my K10D for a little over a month now and am still getting to know it. I passed on the kit lens and with that savings plus the rebates, almost paid for the 50 f1.4 lens. The 50-135 f2.8 was available at the same time, so I got it too. Just received my 16-50 f2.8 a week ago and am enjoying the wider angle of view.

Perhaps you would be good enough to tell me how to place the K10D logo you have in my signature.

And this is what I get. Does this work in Vista, or am I totally missing something?
