My Pentax Lenses So Far

Hi all,

It's a start but so far I have these lenses for my Pentax K20D

20mmF2.8 FA
28-70mm F4 FA
50mm F2 A
and my latest came in the mail today a 28mmF2.8A, I purchased one off ebay 2 weeks ago and the aperture ring
didn't turn and there was a scratch on the rear element. This new one is better all around. I don't know what it is
about Pentax stuff but I really like them the picture quality has something different about it, if it's the glass they
use or the processors in the camera. I just lovin it, I've been using Nikon's for so long that using pentax has been
a real treat.

I'm happy you feel ok with Pentax! Yes, colors and light is something spectacular! From what I found, I've seen that lenses play an important role, not only sensor of the camera.
You have a really good kit now!
Try to think about what kind of photography you would like to do (sport, landscapes, portrait, macro..) and maybe try to buy specific lenses for your purpose!
Remember that on your camera also works ancient Pentax-K bajonette lenses!

Provided LBA is not a problem for you, those three lenses are about all you may ever need. Pentax colours and contrast are second to none.

I got that same lens about a month ago on ebay as well for $77. I really like it. It's my standby "prime" wide angle lens until I can pick up a DA 21.

How's the aperture ring in that,my first one was jammed and the one I have now is better and for $47.00 it was even sweeter.
