Just signed up as it looks a useful place for advice.

I own an Pentax ist D and a couple of Pentax zooms and an 100mm f2.8 smc-fa macro lens. I've also got a Canon S30 for snaps, in fact it was my first pitch into digital cameras. Also got a Minolta Dimage Scan Dual film scanner for the many films I have.

I've been using cameras for years. I think I started with a Cosina and the D is the latest. I'm not a prolific photographer but I do enjoy the process, especially digital. In fact it was digital that got me into using the cameras more. I watched and waited, probably like many of you, for it all to mature and then pitched in.

The whole darn thing moves so fast now, my D has already been left behind, though it works pretty well for me still.

Looking forward to making a few posts: Now to sort out an avatar.

Hello Dogpaws and welcome

I wouldn't worry about using the ist D, it still is a very good camera and very well built

Yeah, in the sense of "This is what you shouldn't do"

Thanks for all your welcomes. I will endeavour to get some pics and links up. I've spent some enjoyable time looking at other peoples pics and have already pilfered some ideas, I mean found some inspiration, yes, that's it.

Welcome to the forum, I have lots of those "This is what you shouldn't do" moments.
K20D and a few different lenses. Plus I'm a complete noob.
