Greetings from Indiana!

Hello!

I purchased a K100D about 2 years ago and have used it sparingly with only the kit lens, but now am looking to get more involved in photography. I've been lurking in the forums and especially the reviews for several months now.

I think my next purchases will be a 50-200mm DAL (to add range and available at reasonable prices) and then perhaps a macro lens (the manual konime-made vivitar 55mm f2.8 1:1 macro caught my eye). Beyond that, probably will look to add a 35mm fast prime lens and then be done with lens purchasing for a while!

Greetings to all.

Lurking is OK but it does have its limitations. My 1st dslr came with 2 kit lens which stopped at 200mm and immediately felt that was about 100mm short, then promptly bought a 55-300mm lens. Much better but is it really enough? Oops! Do feel the early symptoms of LBA? It could be worse, it could be coupled with CBA. Welcome aboard, now lets see some photos........Cliff
