my obligatory "I'm new" thread


I'm all over socal and I just found this forum. I've been taking pictures with my k100d super for a year now. I have my kit lens, an fa 50mm f1.4 (LOVE IT), and a beginner 50mm-300mm telephoto lens.

I just started post processing via Lightroom last month so I've been going crazy on it now that I have a computer that's not 6 yrs old.

Not sure if i can post pics in this thread but I'll link to flickr

I'm eyeing a macro lens as my next prime

Welcome to the forum and photography is really fun as long as there is little ego involved

ah thanks! I look forward to being in this forums as all my other buddies think my camera is mediocre compared to their nikon and canon.

I'm eyeing a da 35mm 2.8 macro as the next lens in my arsenal.

Welcome! Your k100d super takes great pictures. You need to ignore the equipment brand snobs - they seldom know what they are talking about.

Oh yeah, I'm feeling the love

Ah specialk, I used to live in Broadway/Anaheim in downtown LBC few years back by the roscoe's =P

But really, it is tough to find anyone who knows pentax language around here so here I am! And how most stores gear towards canon or nikon... But it's good to be different and not have to pay an arm and a leg for an image stabalized lens for those brands!

I'm glad some of you enjoy some of my stuff on flickr so far!
