Hello from Chicagoland (Southside)

Hello, I am just a photography amateur. I had some classes years ago in film photography,but I've been away from it for 30 years. In the last few years I've been a Fuji user. Starting with an X10 and just recently the Fuji X-T1. I have sold off all my Fuji gear and I am now going the SLR route, hoping for a more accurate and faster autofocus. I purchased a Pentax K-3 with the 18-135mm lens from B&H and it should arrive at my UPS store tomorrow. Looking forward to being here!

Man, you started off right... the DA 18-135 wasn't available when I first got started in digital. What it does for you is, if you're thinking of getting better glass, it holds the fort until you know what you want. Until you make that decision, you get images that will compare favourably to just about anything else you might ever buy. It's not like you're going to want to re-take pictures with a better lens.

I started off in Chicago, in Cook County hospital, but that was in the first half of the last century.
