howdy ..

Hello all:
Heard a lot about Pentax and finally bought a k-7 and begin the learingn process. Actually , one of my friends who took some great pictures with his k20D sealed the deal fo rme. I bought the k-7.

I also bought a Tamron 70-200 (if) recently and very happy with it.
Any recommendation on wider angle lens ?

I am looking for some advice and guidance on buying old and famous lenses that i can use directly with my k-7.

may be later i will post some of the pictures that I shot in USA
happy shooting ... every body

Hi Marlon,

Welcome on the forum! Wish you lots of good times with your new camera.
There is a whole bunch of (older) wide-angle lenses you can use on your Pentax. That's (part of the) fun!.
Older (f.e.) M-lensen are for sale for reasonable prices (at least in Europe).

Welcome to the site!

as far as wide angle, there are tons of good quality primes out there (plus a just released 35mm 2.4 lens) that can be bought off e-bay or this forum. 28mm is a decent wide angle prime also - plus most you find have good to excellent quality.

I have a DA12-24 and absolutely love it. It's quite a bit more $$$, but worth every penny in my opinion.
