    Hi all,

    Just joined the place following my (fairly speedy) decision to get back into Photography... I left about 15 months ago (sold off Canon 5D mk2 and about 3k in glass).... used to be amateur fashion photographer.

    I picked up a nice new NEX-6 with kit lens for now and a 30mm f2.8 sigma .... i'll look at nicer glass later...

    Can't wait to give it a whirl .... loving the fact that you guys are getting lots of vintage glass and giving it new life.... looking at some Pentax 70-200 f4's right now for peanuts money :)

    Thanks all!

    Welcome and enjoy.

    Most of us who have the 30mm love it.

    Welcome.

    Best luck finding Pentax 70-200/4.0 for peanuts. There is one SMC A in ffordes for 50 GBP so I think one can be had relatively cheap, I have settled to a Tokina RMC 80-200/4.0 and Vivitar Series 1 70-210/3.5 that I got for something like 25 euros per piece.

    Welcome to the NEX and NEXTalk. And that's a problem many here share with you. ;)

    Finally went with a Canon 70-210 f4 in the end for £25
    It's immaculate and works perfect

    Now we need samples from it! There are lots of pretty decent long zooms to be had. I think that handling is quite important aspect and it seems that I use Tokina 80-200/4 much more than Vivitar series 1 70-210/3.5 for that reason. I think that I will get that Canon and Minolta ones just for comparison if I can get them cheap.
