Chicagoland Greetings!

Greetings All from the NW burbs! Having been taxed (pun intended) with the duty of photographing a local semi-pro football team this summer and not having shot an slr since I shelved my Minolta X570 decades ago, I set out to find a dslr at my price point. Enter the K5II. Very impressed so far and still learning. A quick browse of the posts and photos on this forum have helped bolster my confidence in my choice. Hope for the best! And here's a test photo, straight out of the box, in green mode.

Welcome aboard!
We have a Chicagoland group here, and we're in the preliminary stages of organizing a get-together this spring.
