Just saying hello.

I'm taking my first steps into SLR photography and have used this forum extensively as a means to educate myself on the options out there. I have purchased a K-50 and a DAL 55-300 lens to get started. Looking forward to sharing my experiences!

Welcome aboard! That's a great start - I'm very happy with my 55-300.

Thanks! As soon as it gets here I intend to get started, can't wait! I'm glad you think the 55-300 was a good choice. My former camera was a Canon SX50 so I know I'll miss the amazing reach it had. The 55-300 seemed like a good telephoto to start with that wouldn't break the bank! Eventually I know I'm going to want to get a lens that is good for macro as well.

There's no shame in that, LBA is getting a reasonable hold on you already.

The camera came in the mail yesterday so I took it to work with me today to try it out. So far I love it!

There's a few striking portraits in that selection.
