Hello everyone! My Name is Justin soon to be owner of a Pentax camera(k10D)! Ive been into photography for awhile now and been spying at the new SLR digicams for sometime( using a Samsung s85 8.2 MP atm) and can't wait for the big change!
When I went from fixed lense digicams to a DSLR I found my love of the outdoors increased as I am outside more now than ever.
You are going to enjoy your new camera as it is a very good semi-pro camera. Just looking at pictures on the web show the K10D to be more than capable for the majority of users. I use the older istDs and love the size of the camera, but it in no way has the incredible feature set of your new K10D.
Aye i can't wait! Landscapes and outdoor photos are my thing. But Being that im moving away from fixed lens, i worry on which lens to get for landscapes and such.
I hear anything below 40mm is good for wide landscape shots correct?
If you are in the wide, wide world of landscapes, I cannot but highly recommend the SMCP-DA 12-24/4. In 35mm terms, it is an 18-36, roughly. I cannot wait until spring has come and the bears have had their breakfasts so I can climb the "hill" behind me and get that elusive shot my 24-90 on film couldn't quite cover. Unfortunately, on top of mountains, there is no room to Zoom with the Feet!
