I just registered and am very happy to be here. I am 62 and decided to take up my past passion. Boy, today's DSLR is a miracle compared to what I was using in the 60s - 80s. Just bought a Canon 40 D with a Tamron 17-50 f2.8 and this combination takes photos that I could never imagine. Glad I am back with this hobby and hope to learn from you guys.
