Hello & Thank You...

I started in photography about 14 years ago using a K1000 w/ a 50mm f/1.4... on loan. I was asked to return it 2 years ago and have been looking for a good DSLR since to replace it. I found this forum and through reading a lot of posts with great detail and examining photos posted from all the different DSLR's I have decided on, and I am about to get my K10D!

So far I have learned a lot from Codiac2600, MRRiley, Benjikan, and numerous others here. (BTW Chris, the night club photography video was great! I use to be a club DJ and did the photos for the club's website. The technique you showed was nothing short eye opening to an admitted amateur.)

Now I wait for my tax return to get my DSLR from B&H. Here's the rundown (remember I'm on a budget here):

Pentax - K10D w/ 18-55mm lens kit
B+W - 52mm UV Haze 010 (MRC) Multi-Resistant Coating Glass Filter
LumiQuest - Soft Screen Diffuser for Camera with Pop-Up Flash
Impact - DL150 Rechargeable Lithium-ion Battery (7.4v, 1700mAh)
Kingston - 4GB Class 6 Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC) Memory Card (x2)
Lowepro - Topload Zoom 1 Camera Holster Bag
Shield Zone - invisibleSHIELD LCD Display Shield Protector
invisibleSHIELD LCD Display Shield Protector

Next Purchase after this will probably be a good, solid, tall tripod (I'm 6'3") & the Pentax SMCP-FA 50mm f/1.4 autofocus lens.

I will try to post some pics as soon as I get the camera and get out of the house. Again... Hello & Thank You.

BTW... From what I have seen so far, RiceHigh needs to go to the Canon forums and leave everyone here alone. Just my $0.02
