Another Aussie

G'day all, thought I'd come across from that 'other' Pentax forum too. After a short line of Canon P&S's, I got a *istDL/Sigma 18-125 kit in January this year, and since then I've taken over 12,000 shots. I bought an AF-540FGZ flash not long ago, and I'm looking at upgrading to the K10D when funds allow. (I want to get my hands on an FA50/1.4 first though.)

I'm heading off on a trip to Adelaide via the Great Ocean Road tomorrow and I'll be sure to post some photos when I get back in a week or so.

Richard

Good on you Richard. The migration from DPR is becoming a diaspora.

cheers

It was snowing not all that far from here about two weeks ago, and one week ago we were in full on bushfire season mode! Crazy weather down here.

After a hectic couple of weeks at work in the leadup to Christmas, I've finally had time to go through the photos I took and start putting them on my blog. First photos are at bendigo3550.day 1: ballarat , more to come over the next week or so.

Welcome! You've got some really nice shots on your site. I like the first one with the people reflected off the grill. How do you find your Sigma lens?

Thanks Alvin. The Sigma isn't bad as a 'cheap' lens. I like the versatility as a wide angle/telephoto/almost macro. Sharpness isn't bad, I'd love to see how it performs with SR.
