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.

@Baczek: Yes, you should be able to get high-precision AF with this lens, as it reports f/2.8 to the camera.

comment Do you have any ideas for a photo shoot that I can do at home with everyday things?
This doesn't answer the question, and in fact, does little more than beg the question.
