Hello from perth

Just wanted to say hello to everyone. Wanted a dslr for a while and managed to talk the minister of war and finance into letting me get one Ended up getting the k-7, and 3 lenses; da 35mm ltd, DA 12-24mm, and tamron 18-250mm. This forum was wonderful resource for me deciding what to get, unfortunately too good, I am now trying to work out how i can sneak a fast 50 under the radar. Well look forward to a lot more time here. (i have finished reading all of 3 forums but still have a fair few to go)

Welcome! Your Minister must be a very understanding person--you got three very good (and not cheap) lenses fairly quickly. Fortunately, you can get a fast manual 50mm for much less.

G'day Wade. Welcome to this fine forum.
There are so many of those ministers of war & finance you'd think we'd be ridden of all conflicts and economic downturns by now!

In any case you managed to negotiate a fine series of equipment. The fast fifty will come in good time.

All the best and great to see another Aussie joining in.
