Hello all. My name is Shane and I have just received my first ever SLR camera. It is a Pentax *ist DL with the kit lens. As this is my first venture into SLR I thought this was plenty of camera for me. I do have a Sigma 70-200mm lens on the way though.

I have only had this cam for a few days so I am still in the playing with it phase. I will post a few of my first pic's in the photo forum. Have a great day all.

Hi Shane, welcome to these forums! I don't know the *ist, but I hear a lot, lot of good things of that camera. I am sure you will have a great time with it!

Welcome Shane! I too have not owned an *ist DL but from what I have heard it is a very good camera. More importantly from what I've seen it takes wonderful images:
