Hello from Paris

Hi everyone,

My name is Malek, and I'm finally joining your forum after quite some time hanging around as an observer.

I look forward to sharing my pictures and experiences with you, and perhaps exchanging with those of you in Paris. Photography has been a hobby of mine for ten years now. While I mostly draw/paint in my free time, I find photography to be a useful alternative when in need of a change of perspective.

I currently own a K10D, great performer since 2006 for my needs, with DA 15mm 4.0 ltd, FA 50mm 1.4, and smc D-FA 100mm 2.8 macro WR lenses.

Cheers,

- Malek

I see you have a thing for high quality primes. Welcome to the club.

Welcome from Chicago!

I can't find any fault with that mix of lenses, those are great matches for the K10. I look forward to seeing some pictures - you can see my Flickr account below.

Thank you for the welcome!

Yes I'm very satisfied with that mix, and surprisingly compact enough to fit them all in my first small camera bag.

I've been feeling an itch lately for a standard prime (30-40mm)... the FA 31mm ltd. seems an elegant, though expensive, solution.

There are some good options in that range from both Pentax and Sigma.
I have a Sigma 28mm f1.8 prime which I like a lot, though it is big. I did pick up a DA21mm ltd a few months ago and it's different enough from the 28mm - and small - that it will get more use as time goes on. That's probably too close to the 15mm though.

A pancake 40mm might be fun to add to your kit.

Welcome to the forum, if you start painting your own camera images, you could combine both your interests.

I currently have the account -mHo- on flickr (https://www.flickr.com/photos/30903347@N05/), where you'll see some photography if you scroll down to older posts. I have been using it for sketches lately, and have decided to create a second account (-mHo- Photo) dedicated to photography.

I was thinking the same thing. In fact, one is heading my way from KEH as we speak

A fine idea, when locked up inside. Maybe I'll post some side-by-side comparisons sometime.
