We would like "Newbies" to introduce themselves in this one thread.


The Admin Group says "Welcome" in advance, and possibly in anticipation.


Happy shooting.

Greetings Dyxumers,
I've been a member of the forum for a while, but I've never introduced myself so here it goes!

My name is Peter (29) and I'm from Osijek, Croatia. I've been taking pictures all my life with various P&S camera (Olympus and Sony) and in 2008 I got my first DSLR, Sony a200. And then all hell broke loose! I got the gear bug and I've "been shooting brick walls" and looking into 2000% crops for quite a while without learning almost nothing about photography. Salvation came when I found dyxum.com - it literally changed my photographic life.

Now, I'm trying to improve myself as a photographer. I've been reading a lot and looking what others do. Cameras and lenses do not take pictures - people do!

I'm engaged to Ida, my constant source of inspiration. I work as a legal counselor in a music school, until this summer I worked as Italian language teacher in a high school. Must add that I'm not a teacher though. I hold a Master's degree in Law. (shoot me!)

Finally, I have to thank everybody on this forum for their comments and suggestions, they are of tremendous help to me!

Cheers!
A77 A200; SAL50F18, Samyang 8mm F3.5, Samyang 85mm F1.4, Min 70-210 F4, MC-MIR 20mm F3.5

Hiya guys, long time lurker here.. your reviews database has proven valuable in helping me select my classic Minolta glass.

When I first got my Alpha I was looking for used glass in the local classifieds and saw an ad for "The Minolta Handshake Lens", a quick Google search brought me here. The next thing you know I've cleared out the local camera shops choicest Minolta AF's.

1 1/2 months later I bought that same 28-135 which tipped me off about Dyxum & vintage Minolta glass working on Alpha's :D

Hi guys!

I'm Kristoffer, and I live in Gothenburg, Sweden. I work as a software system tester, and got a master's degree in interaction design.

Been here at dyxum for a few months now, but didn't create an account. Just yesterday I created an account and made my first post =)

Been shooting with compact cameras since 2005. Bought my first DSLR this spring, which made myself much more interested in photography. A Sony alpha a33, which I love!

Trying to go through the assignments right now, which is a really great way to learn about techniques, and how to take good photos. I really appreciate any comments I get on my posts =)

Feeling really good to be here =)

Hello everyone. I have been checking in on this site for several months. Looking at mostly lens reviews and samples from users. I have been a minolta user for many years since i bought the maxxum 7000 in 1988. Since then i have gone through many models to where i am now.

Currently, i use the A100 with original minolta lenses of which i own several including 135 f2.8 af, 50 f1.8, 85 f1.4 just to name a few. The alpha is not the only camera brand i own and use. I also use the Canon 30D and panasonic LX2 and FZ100. I use the 30D far more than the others.

At the moment i am looking for an adapter that would allow me to use my minolta MD lenses on my 30D. The two lenses i want to try is the 85 f2 and the formula 5 135 f1.8.

Correction on the 50 f1.8. I meant to say 50 f1.7.
