Hi

Just wanted to say hi to everyone. I've been on here a while but now just finding my way around. I've been a bit busy with photography but as my K3ii is in for repair it's seems a good opportunity to have a look round here and introduce myself. The lens database is awesome and has been invaluable for researching glass options. Current lenses are 15 ltd, F28 and DA*50-135. Really looking forward to seeing how the new 11-18 f2.8 performs when it's released. I'd quite like to also get my 50-135 converted to screw drive but it can't be done on the K3ii body. It's not that the SDM doesn't work but it's slow and unresponsive in anything other than good light. If anyone could help me do the convert I would be really grateful. Happy to pay someone who has the right body and who knows what they're doing! Anyway thanks for reading and hope to get to know some of you soon. Simon

Thanks mate. I feel the site is a bit confusing - a bit like a labyrinth, but I'm sure I'll get used to it.
