An introduction of new member

Hi Everyone,

I hope that I don't get removed from the forum for being honest. I have not purchased my Pentax K100D. It is close and I am more committed than ever to the purchase of K100D after my visit to Ritz Camera yesterday. I love the ergonomics and the viewfinder in K100D. I am a bit concerned on the AF speed and shutter lag but in my short visit to store, I find it a non issue. It is fast and responsive as far as I can tell.

I am using a p&s for my blog pages and I am planning for K100D before year's end along with lens kit and 50-200. I am looking for a walkaround lens such as Sigma 18-125, other suggestions are very welcome. My amateur work can be seen in my blog pages

I'm sure you won't be disappointed with the purchase of a K100D. Another solid and inexpensive walkaround lens would be the Sigma 24-135mm. Although there are concerns over compatibility issues (mainly w/ the DS), it's a great lens. I have it on my DS, and although a bit bulky, it performs extremely well. Some samples shots can be seen in my gallery :
