New on the block

Hi, I am a new member but not new to this web site.I have used this site for several years now, for information purposes. I have always had a interest in photography but never seemed to have much time to pursue it.

I retired three years ago and decided to give it a try. I picked up a k10 of Ebay and a Pentax DA 18 55 al. I am just getting started but must say the camera is a dream to use.
My interest is in nature and wild life so as time moves on I will pick up a telephoto lens that will better suet my interest.

Welcome to the fourm. You might look at the DA 55-300.
An excellent lens at a reasonable price.

Hi, and welcome, Daniel. I have the 55-300, and find it to be a good performer for the price - got mine used on craigslist for $160. Love to see some photos from your beautiful part of the world. Enjoy the forum.
