Hello from Chicagoland

Hello all. I finally made the move to a digital slr, the K-30. It's so much fun after all of those years using a manual film slr (Canon AE-1). I always had an appreciation for the old workhorse K1000 and was excited to finally become a pentax owner.

Most of my photography so far is of my kids and some plant macro shots. Too much fun.

Here's a ranked list of my lens collection ranked (#1 my favorite)

1) Takumar Asahi Super-Multi-Coated 50mm 1.4
2) SMC Pentax-FA 100mm F2.8 Macro
3) SMC Pentax-FA 50mm F1.4
4) SMC Pentax-DA 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 ED AL DC WR
5) Pentax SMC 28mm F2.8 MF
