Thanks everybody!
sure is nice to share the good news and know you all can appreciate it and share my excitement.


Yes, I'm looking forward to see what I can do with the BigMa too. It's really hard to spend that much money on just one lens when there are so many things I'd like to invest it in. I'm also thinking...
should I have put a couple hundred with it and ordered the K7?
decisions,
decisions
like my late wife use to say... how come you aren't rich instead of so good looking?!

Congrats on all the good news !Ihope you will be as happy as I am with the Bigma.The investment will be worth the reward. My only advice is ........weight training .
I also want the K7 but promised the wife not to get it till October when I have my next big paid event.It's like A kid with the sears catalog waiting for Christmas.decisions ....decisions.....

Morning GW - Gee, we have a home grown Professional among us now! Congratulations and way to go!!! I think that the glass was the way to go. Even with all of the features of the new K7, glass will last (be more useful) longer (just do not drop it)!!!!

Congratulations! I look forward to seeing the results of the new gig and the bigma! Since I'm on the other end of the scale (newbie), I'll enjoy trying to learn from your "pro" work.
