Hello from San Francisco!

Hello All,

Just wanted to introduce myself... I've had a K200D for a little while now and finally have found the time to discover all the rich features of the camera and dSLRs in general. I found this forum while looking for a different lenses available for Pentax dSLRs. There definitely seems to be a lot of rich information here which I'm excited about! The only other forum I've used and have been addicted to is vwvortex.

I've started a flickr account just to keep a showcase (Flickr: prajno's Photostream ). Would love any comments from you guys. I just bought the David Busch's Pentax K200D guide on Amazon as well (Amazon.com: David Busch's Pentax K200D Guide to Digital SLR Photography: David D. Busch, Matthew Bamberg: Books ).

My immediate goals are to get a new lens (I'm eyeing the SMC Pentax M 50mm 1.7) and also to start getting comfortable with the Manual setting mode.

Cheers,
Prajno

PS. Thought a picture from SF might be appropriate I am still getting used to the kit lens

Welcome Prajno, the Bay Area is certainly becoming a hotbed of Pentax shooters, it's great to see.

Thanks!

All,

Thank you for the replies and welcomes. I'm really excited to get into photography. The learning curve and the amount of information and patience required is a little overwhelming. But I'm hoping to capture some great shots soon. I got the book from Amazon on the camera, and so far it has been quite useful. I've been looking through a lot of the forums as well. The monthly and weekly contests and mini-games are way cool. Hoping to participate sometime as well. I think my first lens maybe the Pentax SMC A 50mm 1.7. Any suggestions for other cheaper lens?

Thanks All.

Prajno, if you want to start asking questions, I suggest you ask them in the Beginners Corner Q&A section where you will get plenty of helpful answers.

This section is strictly for introducing yourself.
