Reinvigorated amateur

I am from the UK, have been keen on photography for about 25 years, having used originally film SLR, then a variety of consumer digital cameras before getting a Pentax K10D, some nice lenses to go with it. I enjoyed this immensely, but my interest waned a couple of years ago. First stage of reinvigorating my interest was to get a K5 (the inability to fine tune individual lenses on the K10D had always really frustrated me), which worked to a point. What really reinvigorated me is our new born daughter, who will soon be 3 months. She smiles for the camera, and doesn't complain about how long it takes to change lenses, or my messing with lighting conditions, the ideal subject

Thank you, I have got some great photos with the DA 70mm, but am finding it a bit too long a lens at times, so am using her as a reason (excuse?) to get a FA 43mm. I am hoping to get some photos that do her justice - and obviously only one of the best lenses will do for that :-)

Welcome to the forum, make the most of your daughters patience now, because there comes a time when they are not so accommodating.
