Hello, hello


This is my first post here, but i've been reading this site for the past few years. It's given me a lot of ideas, and the articles are really amazing.

It's been very helpful in helping me find out more about the old ME Super I inherited, how to use it better, as well as the types of lenses that came with it.

I am really hoping I can get into the DSLR stuff soon, since I outgrew the P&S cameras awhile ago (or, rather, they have gone to eternal rest?)

Nice to meet you!

Welcome to the forums - glad you decided to join us at last!

I think this must be one of the most (perhaps *the* most) helpful photography sites around - I've learned so much here, and it's good to hear you've benefitted to.

I'm sure we can help encourage you in taking your first steps into DSLR photography

There's a great resource here - the Marketplace. Used DSLR bodies are very affordable, particularly the K5s, which are really great.

I'm sure it'll definitely encourage me to spend!

A used K-5 II sure sounds nice!
