proud new *ist DS owner
Just wanted to say hi to everyone. Been reading a lot on these forums and it was a lot of help in helping me decide on a digital SLR. I had the chance to score a used DS w/ Sigma 18-125mm, cable shuter, SD card and cir. pol filter off ebay - and score I did, with kit and kaboodle for $625. Now it's just a matter of taking lots of pictures.
I come from shooting with Canon (A1, Elan II) and MF with a Pentax 67. I couldn't believe how large the digital files can enlarge to while still retaining quality. The thing that I did notice is that the autofocus is a bit more finicking on the pentax and can end up a bit soft if you're not careful.
Not much experience in the darkroom, and digital PP just adds a completely new dimension to creative control. Lots to learn but looking forward to it and sharing thoughts with the other members on this forum.
