New K-x user - HI

Hi all
Just got my first non P&S, a K-x and loving it. This forum swayed my decision to go Pentax instead of the Canon I had my hearts set on (thank you) The forum is friendly and full of great advice. Only complaint I have is that after reading through the forum I already want more... I thought I'd be happy with my fancy new camera and one big shiny lens
I have already bought another lens from the marketplace here. And dreaming about the DA 40mm limited teeny tiny lens and the Tamron 28-75mm that everyone seems to love so much. Oh well gives me good motivation to learn to use what I've got so I can really NEED some better lenses, that cost more than my camera did
Thank you to everyone here for creating such a friendly, helpfull and educational forum.

Welcome, Melissa!

I don't own one--I shoot mostly primes--but great choice on that Tammy 28-75.

Eventually, you're going to need something on the wider end, but for the kind of shooting I do, that 28-75 is perfect for walk-around, and the images are stunning.
