Hi My name is John from Stony Point NY. My hobby is outdoor and nature photography. I have been a Pentax user since 1989 when I replaced an old Minolta SLR with a Pentax SF10. I used the SF10 for about 20 years and then upgraded to a K10D. SInce acquiring the K10D the old SF10 just seems to be collecting dust but the main lens I used an F 28mm 2.8 is still well used. The K10D is still in use, but I have since acquired a K5 which is now my primary photographic tool now. Lenses used: The tried and true F 28mm 2.8, DFA 50mm macro, DA 17 -70, and DA 55 - 300. I just ordered the DA 15 Limited and I feel my lens contingent will be complete with the DFA 100 WR macro.

Welcome, John.

That sounds like a fine lens lineup. If you like, we'd be happy to see some of your shots.

Also, have you ever tried a fisheye lens? If not, I'd recommend you do. My Vivitar 7mm gives some fun views and works well as a landscape lens, too.
