Hi Guys

K20D is my first DSLR. I got a killer deal that I could not pass so purchased the body, DA 18-55 and DA* 50-135. It is the best camera for it's price range, without a doubt.

I look forward to being a part of this forum.

It's not my first SLR. I have been shooting with my Canon A1 for the past 20 years. I also got a nice bonus from my company, and it was burning in my pocket. Probabley the last bonus for a while with this economy.

Thanks for all the warm welcome. It is great to finally have a DSLR, I have been dying to get one for the past 5years. Now I have the itch to collect glass. Next lens will have to be a fast 35mm, any suggestions?

The 35mm Limited is a sweet lens from all accounts but to recommend one I have used and liked very much is the FA35mm f2.0. Great lens in all respects and about half the price.

What about Sigma 28mm F1.8, it's about the same price. I need a good indoor low light lens.
