Greetings from Oklahoma City

Hello everyone. Like many here I've frequented the resources on the forums for some time but just signed up today.

I own a Pentax K-3 along with a few lenses. I consider myself an advanced amateur and I really love to get my camera out for just about any occasion.

I try to dabble in every type of photography I can but I probably take more than my fair share of landscapes and family photos but It's all fun and I want to try it all!

I look forward to interacting here after probably a year of lurking!

My current kit consists of:

Pentax SMC DA 18-135mm F/3.5-5.6
Pentax FA-77 F/1.8 Limited
Pentax SMC 500mm F4.5
Tamron 80-300mm F/something or other
I think somewhere I have a fungal 135mm F/2.5 in quarantine.

and some m42 screw mount lenses:

SMC 55mm F/1.8
Super Macro-Takumar 50mm F/4.0
SMC 35mm F/3.5
SMC 200mm F/4.0


I clicked the buy button today on a Sigma 18-35 F/1.8 but it wont be here until Saturday.

My go to lens right now is the 18-135 but I suspect that will change when the Sigma arrives. I love the versatility of the 18-135 but don't love the corner sharpness (or lack thereof). It'll definitely keep its spot in my bag for when the weather turns nasty though.

Thanks for the welcome guys. I really appreciate it. I think I am going to really enjoy this community.

I'm about to post some pics that I chose from some of my favorites over the past couple of years.

Welcome! That's a really interesting lens line-up you have, and congratulations on the incoming Sigma - I'll be interested to hear what you think of it.

So far I like the sigma quite a bit. I've not tested it as thoroughly as I hope to. It was pretty cold and crappy here today and I just got some random shots around the house.

My biggest fear when I bought it was that I would have the focus issues I have heard about But that doesn't seem to be he case. I need to do more testing though. Hopefully I'll have some interesting shots to post soon. I was also thinking of checking my local shops for some kind of test pattern I could hang on the wall for some testing
