Welcome back Jules - thought I hadn't seen you around for a while but was too busy taking photos with my K5 and Kr to question your disappearance

Strange thing is - I am not a particularly brand loyal sort of person - in anything other than photography. I have owned (and still do) a couple of CaNikon compacts but when it comes to SLR - ever since I first picked up an ME Super - I have never been tempted to change brands.

I am happy with the colour of my grass

No matter how many lenses I have owned - I have always needed just one more

Pentax grass is greener than Canon grass.

It's all in the processing.
No equipment list here but thanks for taking an interest. My Flickr

Welcome back.

Want to buy my 60-250mm?

If my Sony A850 sells then an emphatic yes mike!

Seriously Guys thanks for the welcome back!

There's a lot more to tell of my Odyssey but I'll save it for now, only to say it's been a journey and a half, financially ruining and has seriously affedted my health.
I am hoping for better times ahead...

Again Cheers...
Cheers Jules...

Yes but the Canon grass is astro turf, not the same thing at all...

I thought the A77 was the ultimate crop camera (according to Sony anyway). Looks very good on paper and the bloke at Jessops couldn't recommend it enough. (which made me suspicious straight away)

The A77 is like the Canon 7D I also had! Which has a Gritty Sensor masked by processing, except Sony didn't bother to mask it much at all!

The Japanese economy. Ours has suffered unnecessary import costs.

Yes all of it, now please!!!

I certainly can't afford to buy it all back now! I'm on very tight leash and will be buying only that which I absolutely need until We have some cash. No ltd's this time around...
Well maybe just one

Welcome back Sir! If it's not too much to ask, I'd recommend that you write an article about your "journey" that will save a lot of people the hassle, the money, and the pain of going through what you went through!

Twitter | Someone said time-lapse?
Pentax K5 | Samsung N9005 | DA 18-55 WR | DA 35 2.4 | DA 50 1.8
Tamron 10-24 SP | Tamron 90 2.8 Macro | Tamron 70-300 Macro
Samyang 85 1.4 ...and a few other manual lenses older than me.
