It took a year to go for Pentax, another to decide on my K20D. After reading this forum for more than two years before and after the process, well I became a member today, finally!

Using SEM and optical micoscopes at work is fun but I want to have the same satisfaction with my photos using my pentax. And it is time to go serious with lenses, finally!

Thank you.

well, I made a quick list after reading nonstop for several nights, and I have 20 lenses on my list so far.
I'm planning to start with SMC Pentax-M 50mm F1.7, try different third party lenses which I read a lot around here and other places.
I like picturing buildings, landscapes the most, so maybe pentax 12-24 mm or a wide angle prime would be the next step. and the ultimate moment will be having 31 mm limited in my hands, hopefully soon.

I would like to have some critics on my photos too, i'll be on it soon.

Welcome, seems like you take your time with decisions, but while you weren't looking LBA crept up on you (20 lens list).
