first buy

I'm a newbie to digital but have owned a pentax slr since 1987. I've been scanning this forum for months now and trying to decide about which macro lens to go with my k-x. I missed out on a vivitar 105 with some kind of extension for 1;1 shots on ebay and was really dossapointed when i was totally outbid. I thought it looked great but had no idea that it would go for the mid 300's. I've liked the pentax 50mm and 100mm DFA though I have never used or owned one.

The series 1 105's from vivitar seem great but I've settled on a ...Vivitar 100mm 2.8 macro pentax PKA

and paid US$290.00 for it which I hope is OK in the end. The reviews seem graet so I can't wait to take some pics. I'm awaiting shipment from the US. The Aussie dollar is strong so it seems a good time for me to buy .

I wonder if there is a dedicated user group or anyone here who can congratulate me on buying a good lens for a decent price.
