Greetings from Toronto, Canada

Hello there,

I've been a long-time-yet-novice Photographer whose been shooting casually. I started with a Zenith 30 years ago, got my first SLR, a Yashica 20 years ago. I entered world of digital in 2001 with Olympus 2100UZ. 6 years later I got my son a k100d with two kit lenses to get him interested in Photography which didn't work and so I adopted back his gears. After saving some money for new gears, I'm now hoping to go up a notch, learn more, and shoot more.

I came across this forum a few weeks ago while researching to buy a k-5, lens and accessories. Information on this site has been very helpful to me and for that I thank you guys.

Perhaps in time I'll gain enough experience to have something to contribute. Meanwhile, I'll be using the knowledge that you guys share here.

I currently have:
  • k-5 (just bought open box)
  • k100d
  • FA 80-320mm F4.5-5.6 (just bought used)
  • DA 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 AL
  • DA 50-200mm F4-5.6 ED
  • AF-540 FGZ (just bought used)

I'm Looking to buy a couple of primes
