Hi from New England

Hi all,

When I finally moved up to a DSLR I used this forum extensively to make my decisions. Thanks to the excellent advice from the many contributors, I ended up with a K100D Super, DA 16-45mm ED, DA 50-200mm ED, FA 50mm 1.4 fixed, and a AF-360FGZ. I had an old Tamron SP 500mm that still works pretty good and only needed a Pentax adapter. I found a Vivitar 2x macro focusing converter on eBay for a decent price. I love it for flower/insect macro shots.

I started in "digital photography" with a video capture card in my Apple II hooked up to a B&W surveillance camera. That rig got me started doing portraits and nature still-lifes.

I've owned about ten digital cameras from .7 MP to 8 MP. I'm partial to closeouts and clearance models with their price reductions.

I have lots of gear but still have a long way to becoming a competent photographer.

Regards, and a big thank you to all of you superbly talented Pentax owners who have shared with us lurkers.
