New K100d owner here.

Got into photography as a hobby about a year ago, and just stepped up to an SLR via the K100 last month. I don't dare call myself a photographer-I refer to myself as a photoenthusiast instead. I've got a lot more enthusiasm than skill (or cash). I'm still in the "take a bunch of pictures and hope a few come out good" stage. Hopefully, further experience will change that. At least a little. Maybe.

Anyone can be a photographer. It's an unqualified noun.
To be an enthusiastic photographer likewise does not infer quality results. "The proof of the pudding is in the eating..." and the whole d....d issue is completely subjective.
If you are getting the results that you want, that's enough.
If not, then you have some work to do in order to get them.
End of story.

Welcome grimlock! I'm at about the same level as you, but I've been doing this for a LOT of years! I see improvement little by little.

It's great to see the K100D/K110D ranks growing!
