Another hello

A little intro
I am new to the world of photography despite being somewhat long in the tooth. My first DSLR is my blue K30 and so far it is fantastic. I admit that I have gone a bit lens crazy and my choices may be a bit odd but they were driven by budget and a lack of self control. The K30 came with the kit 18-55 which Sassoon followed by a smc da 50-200, both of which I really like. The next was pure indulgence, a smc da 35mm. Next came a bargain, a mint manual Pentax 50mm f2 that was too cheap to miss at £20. Next came a Miranda 24mm f2.8, recommended by a pro. My final lens for now is a Pentax 100-300, f4.7, the better version of the three according to the experts, which I hope to pair with a teleconverter. Yep, I know, nuts :0) one thing I have found is that thanks to this camera I am finally seeing the city i have been looking at for years. I love this forum. It has proved to be an invaluable resource. I also love my Pentax and I am convinced I did the right thing in passing on nikon and giving canon a very wide berth. Its good to be here.
