Hi all,
I have been reading a few of your groups forums and have decided I am as unstable as this lot, so I have joined.
It all started years ago when I inherited my Father's ESII system. I added a *ist D and have tinkered with both for a while now.
With great interest I have read the K7 vs K-x debate and, being budget minded I found a factory refurb'd K-x with kit lens for a steal. Just picked it up yesterday so here goes...
let the fun begin!

WOW! Talk about quick replies!
Thanks all for the warm words. I am now on my way out the door to take some photos of the chaos out in the snow.....yes I said SNOW. I am supposed to be motorcycling today, but no...SNOW and only -3 Celsius. (typical spring weather in southern Alberta)
Will let you know how day 1 goes.

Well - they were skiing in the CairnGorm at the weekend here - so why shouldn't you have snow in Alberta ?

Have fun and bring back some nice shots

Don't Canadian road signs say you have to carry snow chains from October to April?

Welcome to the forum.

If it makes you feel any better the south of France has had a heap of snow today, and huge waves along the Cote d'Azur.

We've had snow in Arizona around this time too. Hope things warm up for you soon.
