I've finally made it to the digital world!

Well I have to kiss my Honeywell Spotmatic, goodby. Just bought a White "Stormtrooper" K-x and am ready to go. What do you suggest honorable Pentax dslr owners, where do I begin?

Then the bank to check how much you can blow on lenses.

First order of business is getting every Limited there is. Then all the DA*'s

Invest in a screwmount adapter and use your old lenses on the K-x.

Welcome to the forum, the beginning is where ever you want to be, but it's from there it starts getting more expensive.

Grateful for the responses!

I'm very appreciative for the tips and dry humor I've received since signing on. I'm now hot on the trail of the popular pancake lens, SMC Pentax-DA 40mm F2.8 Limited.
Thanks to all!
