Hello from Germany

Hey, first off: Thanks for the great lens database! It really helped me with figuring out which lens to buy (and which lenses I still want).

About me: I am a c.s. student in the Saarland, a small federal state in the south-west of Germany (though not native from here, but a little further north, the Eifel).
I always loved fooling around with other peoples (proper) cameras, but didn't get around to buying one for myself - until recently. My father lent me his K200D for a month, but now my sister took it to Australia. I was finally infected and got to get my own.
I ended up with a used K20D, and a set of lenses to practice with:
Oh, and from some time this weekend on a Sigma 18-50mm F2.8-4.5 DC OS HSM, since I got very lucky with the price (wrong auction title). Need to figure which lens I will keep in that fl range - but that's going to be a different thread ;-)

Anyway, next mission: Practice

Oh, of course, this is a photography forum, so I'll attach a picture.
This shot was taken at the Urban Art exhibition at the Völklinger Hütte, an (industrial) UNESCO world-heritage site.
The exhibit is called "Lilith's Progeny" by Doze Green.

Willkommen to the forum! I spent a lot of fun days in the Eifel when I was stationed there 50 years ago. Of course that was mostly at the old Nurburgring. We'll look for you in the K20D Club. Looking forward to seeing more of your images,
