Greetings from Upstate/Western NY!

I'm a college kid, taking pictures since I was 11 - last (freshman) year I took a couple photo classes and (independently) learned to develop film (such fun). I'm interested in such non-traditional processes such as HDR and a hybrid film/digital workflow, but my main attraction is casual day-to-day life photography. All the digital cameras that I've owned have sucked (currently have a Canon S3). Yesterday night I ordered my first DSLR, a K200D. Gets here Wednesday.

Here's my Flickr: Whee

I'm really excited to get it! I'm also looking for a cheap, fast wide-angle prime - I'd think that the 20-28 mm range with f/2.8 is ideal, and I don't care if it's manual focus and old (even screw mount)... care to point me in the right direction?

Welcome. I bet you will enjoy this camera. Keep your eye open on local Craig's list I got 4 -5 old manual lens in great shapes for cheap. But for specific lens check out KEH Camera: Used Cameras, Digital Cameras, Film Cameras, Laptop Computers and More. who have used lens. the big photography stores in NYC (B&H (B&H Photo Video | Digital Cameras, Camcorders)) and Adorama (Digital cameras, all other cameras and everything photographic from Adorama Camera) have used lens. Good luck and have fun.
