Very happy to be here

Hey all,
As the owner of a Sony a6000, I am always on the look out for smaller lighter lenses that suit the a6000 body. I have used this forum extensive to inform my decisions. So far I am the very happy owner of three SMC pentax m primes (28 2.8, 50 1.7 and the 35 2.8) and I am currently looking to purchase a 135mm lens.
I enjoying photographing landscapes, flowers, my family and things of beauty of intrigue I see in everyday life. I want to get into street portraits but need to pluck up the courage to ask strangers. This is one reason for the 135mm lens. On the crop sensor it will equate to just over 200mm. Its small size should make it perfect for capturing candid moments.

Welcome Peter. The more Aussies, the merrier!

Try and get your hands on a K-1 (or an old film camera), and look through those lovely K-mount lenses in their native format

For "Street Photography" just use that 28mm, preset to focus about 10 feet and aperture set to F8.0, then everything from about 5 feet to infinity will be good enough... just fire away.

Remember the famous phrase... “If your pictures aren't good enough, you're not close enough” a quote attributed to the American photographer Robert Capa.
