Hello from Utah

Hi, found this place while doing research into DSLRs.

Used Pentax equipment before moving to digital (in August 2003) - still have a KX and ZX-50. Been progressing up the digital food chain since then - started with a Olympus C-750 and have been using a Fujifilm Finepix S6000fd since last fall.

The DSLRs have hit a price where it's hard to ignore them - plus we'd like better performance in low light and at the kids' (age 7 & 3) soccer games.

Looking at getting a K200D (from Amazon) before the rebates run out, and a telephoto lens - either the Pentax DA 50-200mm f/4-5.6 ED or the Pentax SMC P FA J - Telephoto zoom lens - 75 mm - 300 mm - f/4.5-5.8 AL.

I've posted some photos at Wikimedia Commons if anyone is interested: User:Zaui - Wikimedia Commons

I'm a moderator on another vBulletin-based forum - really like the interface and the features in the new update.
