    Hello! Just signed up with this forum. I've been fooling around with photography for quite a few years. First really good camera was a Nikkormat followed by a a Nikon F Ftn. I've owned quite a few cameras but lately have settled on Sony. I have 2 of the last Sony optical viewfinder models - the (DX) A580 and the (FX) A900 along with some Sony and Minolta lenses. I pretty much shoot anything that steps in front of my lens from travel, people, landscapes and close-ups. I shoot in RAW 99% of the time and post processing is done with Sony's Image Data Converter Ver. 5 and from there to Adobe PhotoShop. Looking forward to hearing from other "old" Sony users! I've posted a few of my photo's here: https://yourshot.nationalgeographic....ofile/534990/#

    I'm not a sony user, but it does sound like we're from a similar generation. I used to dream of a Nikon F, but it was decades later before I finally got a Nikon (not quite an F).

    Have fun here, and I hope you find things to interest you.

      A couple of Nikon Questions
      by sharynideas
      I'm thinking of getting a refurbished Nikon DSLR. Probably a 3000. I'm under no illusions that I will ever become professional, but would like to take good landscapes and macros, mostly to putter with in photo art.
      I have a Tokina SD 35-200 mm lens and a Vivitar MC Teleconverter both of which...
