K10D newbie

Hello all. My name's Ric and I'm new to the dSLR world.
My camera experience gone from disposables to APS to a Canon G6 (which is for sale BTW) and finally my K10D.
I'm still trying to perfect the basics and glad the camera has IS built into the body. My only gripe so far is the auto white balancing which could be better.
I got it about a month ago with the 50-200mm lens to get the full rebate from the company.

If anyone is selling a pentax 50/1.4 in the manual or automatic variety, let me know.

Thanks and good to be here.

Hi ricosuave and welcome.

You can always adjust AWB to your needs.
To allow this go to Menu\Custom Setting\Fine tune when AWB and set it to Enabled.
About 50mm 1:1.4 lens. You don't realy need one.
I have to admit, is nice to have one, but you can do just fine with 50mm 1:1.7
Plenty of these on eBay. Price is different to. For 1.4 you could expect to pay around 90 and 1.7 you can get for around 30.
