Hello from Vancouver, B.C.

Greetings from Vancouver!

I've been having so much fun with my Pentax gear that I realize I completely skipped over introductions on the forums and jumped headlong into posting.

I've enjoyed photography since my high school days and recently became reacquainted with my Pentax gear after having had a love/hate relationship with my Canon digital gear for many years (loved the digital gear, hated the fact that my best lenses were only stopping down to F4). It was only after I started to have the itch for a prime lens in the shape of a Canon 50mm F1.4 that I saw the light and realized that I pretty much had the collection of glass I wanted and all I needed as a new (used) body. I'm also enjoying the camaraderie of the forums and being free of the polarized discussions one often finds in computer, gaming, or automotive forums.

Cheers!

Vancouver sounds nice! You should have a lot of beautiful scenery to shoot. You've got some fine images on your flickr pages.

To have a FA* 85mm f/1.4 and not a Pentax body would have been a sin. Let me know if you get bored with it.

If that's the case, I was a sinner for 7 years while my 85mm lay preserved without being used!

Oh, the thought...

"7 years": This magical numbers fits the biblical dimensions of this tragedy. All is good that ends well. Glad you got away from your aberration (sic).
