Hello from British Columbia, Canada

Been lurking here for almost a year but only recently posted. Guess it's time to say hello.

Living the life on Vancouver Island and grabbed my first DSLR last November. Been playing pretty hard since.
Have the K-30 and the 2 lenses I bought with it, WR DA 18-55 and the DA-L 55-300. By January I realized that close ups weren't possible without a Macro and grabbed the Tamron 90mm 2.8. A sale in early summer saw the DA 35mm 2.4 added to the list. The past 2 weeks I ended up picking up a trio of 50mm M lenses, 1.4/1.7 and 2.0 as well as a Vivitar Tele Converter.

Live on Vancouver Island out here off the West Coast and am looking forward to joining the fray.

Thank you all for the welcome.

The 1.4 and 1.7 were $50 for the pair. Hard to pass up.
The 2.0 and Tele converter were $5 and $6.

My LBA will continue if I keep finding deals like that............

Hey, I had my first Nanaimo bar in Nanaimo, I said, "What's a Nanaimo bar." The girl behind the counter said "They're famous everywhere." She looked at me like "What rock did you crawl out from under?" My mom used to live in Sidney, I haven't been back out since she moved back to Toronto.

Welcome to the forum, my youngest daughter just flew out to Vancouver last Friday for a well earned holiday.

Hope your all looking after her.
