G'day from Australia

G'day everyone.

My name is Simon and I am from Sydney Australia.
I just picked up my first DLSR today (early B'day present).

Just bought a K10D with the 18-55mm kit lens ... and also the smc PENTAX-FA J 75mm-300mm F4.5-F5.8AL lens. Also purchased a UV filter and Circ Pol filter as well.

Am yet to get a tripod and head yet ... but it's on the to-do list.

It's my first foray into SLR's altogether (after using P&S cameras) ... so it's going to be a decent learning curve for me. I have been doing a lot of reading and having been playing with the new camera so far .... and it has been fun ... not easy ... but fun.

Looking forward to learning more on this camera ... and showing some of my shots ... entering competitions.

My main interests are modified vehicles ... but looking at getting in photography in many areas as it has interested me for quite some time.

Thanks ... after playing around across the weekend ... it's not as hard as I initially thought it would be ... still ... a lot more learning is needed.

And a tripod for sure ... need to start saving the pennies again.
