Hello from Suffolk, England

Im Scott from Suffolk in England and I live in a little village between Cambridge and Ipswich.
I purchased my first dSLR a few weeks back and I obviously choosed a Pentax. It was a choice between the Nikon D5000 and the K-x and after a few weeks of research and the reading of reviews I picked the K-x which I am very glad of.

I brought the kit from Currys for 429 which was meant to be 449, but after a little search I found a 5% voucher online. It came with the standard smc DA 18-55mm lens and another smc DA 50-200mm lens.

I then brought from Amazon a;
Lowpro 140 carry case @ 13
Transcend 8GB SDHC Class 10 Memory Card @ 11
Hoya Pro-1 UV filter @ 21
Energize Re-Charable AA Batterys inc Charger @ 20
3 LCD Screen Protectors @ 3

I am watching a couple of Pentax 50mm f1.7 lens on ebay but have noticed two different types such as Pentax-A or Pentax-M, So was just wondering what the difference is and what one I should try and buy?

I also have a couple of photos I would like to upload but where would be the best place to place them?

Hello

Thanks for that Adam, will sure check them out.
I also think I posted this thread twice and I didn't know yourself had to check it before. So I thought it had not posted, which then made me re-write it and post again
