Greetings from Massachusetts

I finally got tired of that "Hello, Lurker" banner appearing. I've found the forums very helpful, especially the lens reviews as I've bought a few used lenses. I bought a K100D Super some years back and finally upgraded to a K-30 last winter, feeling guilty about doing that when I had a perfectly good DSLR, but I am using the K-30 much more - the sum total of improvements really did make a difference in what I can do and the "fun factor." And I'm trying to steer clear of LBA, though I added a 400mm Sigma 5.6 AF (alas, no signs of the fabled Tele-Macro in a K-mount) and a 100mm/f4 SMC-M macro (I finally got tired of the precarious cross-mounting of my old Nikon 55mm/f3.5 micro and worrying it would fall out, as well as dealing with a dark field of view when stopped down).

Anyway, this is a great community and I hope to contribute a bit now that I am no longer lurking.
