Hi All!

New to the forum and new to Pentax! I have a K-7 on the way with a DA* 55mm 1.4 and a DA* 50-135mm f2.8 on the way. I also hope to pick up a k20d used here for my wife. I recently switched from minolta/sony.

Welcome! Sounds like you've already secured some great lenses for your camera

Sounds like a good kit besides the lack of a wide angle. Were you using a Sony DSLR?

Welcome in.

Welcome to the forum.
Gone straight for the big guns - well done.
I'm sure your wife will enjoy the K20D if she can share some of your lenses.

Ya, I was using Sony stuff, a200, a550, and some nominal glass. I did not want to get to invested because it was mainly bought so my wife could learn to use a SLR style camera. I do plan to pick up a wide angle very soon, hopefully a 21mm and a 15mm from the limited line. I have also been looking at sigma lenses. Soon I think my brain is going to explode!
