    Hey, I'm completely new to photography. I've been interested for the past few years but health issues really got in the way. Anyways, I'm 19, and currently residing in Vancouver.

    I just bought a Sony a200 after being on the fence for a while between the Canon XTi and the a200 (both in my price bracket, I'm pretty poor right now). I know there are a lot of people who really like Canon but in the end the a200 just felt right. I have the stock lens but I'm really hoping to find a decently priced Sigma 30mm f/1.4 or equivalent lens so I can really start seeing what I can do.

    I can't wait to get started and hope to learn a lot here and someday be able to give back in turn.

    I'll definetely be doing that very soon! There is a camera show soon here in town and Ill be able to pick up a few lenses for really decent prices. Thanks to some help I've received on the forum, I know exactly what I'm looking for.
