    Hello all, names Ben. I've always been a camera/photography lover, but only got into in early 2013 started with an Olympus OM-77 AF. Used the Olympus for a few months until I got a Minolta Maxxum 7000, i'm sure some here know of it. When I got it, it came with a 35-70 macro zoom, great for normal shots but I wanted more so I bought a few more lenses online and filled about 30 rolls of film through 2013-2014. I put the camera's away when a frequent lack of a developer at the local Walgreens and cost got too much to afford but I didnt stop, I have a Point and shoot Canon Powershot A630 that kept me hanging around.
    Now just recently I bought a Used Sony Alpha 100 and given I already had a good group of great lenses I was set but still wanted more lenses to play with, luckily I got a minolta 28mm from a junker camera at my salvation army.
    I havent really done much, mostly test shots but I have dabbled in Astro-photography, portraits, wildlife, scenery and Macro. I am most interested in astro and macro right now.
    I'm hoping to learn a thing or two here and share my pictures with this community.

    With that lens collection, you should buy yourself a Sony translucent mirror camera (A57 or newer). The A100 was O.K. but things have gotten so much better: More pixels, more features, etc.
