Hey y'all,

This is Patrick from the DFW area. Been reading the forum for several months and finally decided to post my hello. Little bit about my gear, I inherited a K100D with the kit lenses and picked up a Pentax 35mm 2.4 and happened to find an old manual Pentax 50mm 1.7.

I keep tossing around the idea of upgrading to a newer model(K20 or K7) but from what I have read, upgrading lenses may be better for the time being. The camera only has about 4k clicks per Photo Me .

I've learned a lot so far, and looking forward to learning much much more.

Have a great day!

Welcome! I'm also in the DFW area. What do you usually shoot?

Thanks for the welcome. I have just been shooting stuff around the house to get a feel of the settings and how they all affect the outcome. Once in a blue moon, I can get my friend to allow pictures of her. When I get some consistency, I want to focus on architecture and nature and maybe play around with portraits.
