I'm primarily a computer and photography enthusiast, but I have a variety of other interests as well, from video games to fountain pens. I take the accuracy and correctness of my contributions very seriously; if there are any problems with my posts, feel free to edit them or let me know in chat if you have any questions or comments.

As a photographer, I use a Pentax K-5 (as well as a K-r as a backup or secondary camera), with a small selection of Pentax lenses. You can also find me on Pentax Forums.

Note that I'm not really into tabletop RPGs. I simply felt that this image suits me best.

comment autofocus and maximum aperture of 60D
See my answer to the linked question: "The limitations ... generally do not apply to third-party zoom lenses that have maximum apertures of f/6.3 at the long end of the zoom range, as they actually report a maximum aperture of f/5.6 to the camera...."
