Another Aussie

Hi all,
I've been lurking around at this great site for a while so I thought I should take the time to register and say gidday.

These forums gave me the inspiration to follow a long held desire to get a DSLR, so I bought a K200D kit a few months ago.

The K200D kit came with a Sigma 18-50 F3.5-5.6 DC and 70-300 F4-5.6 which is fairly common here in Australia due to the Pentax distributor (Welcome to C.R. Kennedy | Photographic, Digital, Medical, Surveying, Surveillance, Digital Audio. CR Kennedy. Australia) also being the Sigma distributor.

Since then I have aquired a Tokina SL28 28mm F2.8 ( which I must get around to doing a report for the database about) and a FA 28-80 F3.5-5.6.

After getting a taste for a Pentax lens, I have barely used the Sigmas.

I think I even caght LBA before I new what it stood for!

Well, I'm off to ebay for more bargins

Did you pay for your gear with gold you mined yourself?

Welcome to the forums, mate.

Thanks guys.

The scary part is I actually work for a gold mine but they don't like us taking any home
