New Guy Here

Hi, another New Yorker here and this one's just got the K20D. This is my first Pentax and my first DSLR. I originally worked with a Canon S3 for the last two years and want to do birding (which these prosumer models are not-so-hot at), and went to Pentax for the drooley features of the K20D and the Takumars.

I love to do nature photography and really prefer manual focus for my subjects 80% of the time since I have coffee hands and would like to take full advantage of nature shots (so in the meantime, I'll be lurking in the equipment area for any unwanted telephotos up for grabs ). I'll look forward to seeing what ye elders can teach me.

Now I just need to slowly get myself acclimated to using this beast like a real photographer.
