The K20D is a fine piece of equipment. You'll enjoy it no doubt.

You can pick-up a pair of 3'rd party batteries on eBay for a pretty decent price ex: 2 x D-LI50 Rechargeable Battery for Pentax K20D K10D on (item 120492060201 end time 05-Apr-11 23:49:25 EDT)

Also, did it come with a charger?

As for a lens, the 18-55 DAL II is a common starter lens that can be had for relatively cheap on eBay ex: Pentax DA 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL II Digital Camera Lens on (item 130503148940 end time 29-Apr-11 01:00:57 EDT)

However, what lens(es) you choose to invest will likely come down to your shooting needs. ie. portrait, macro etc. Which could lead you into a prime lens or a slightly longer zoom, that is better suited for portraits etc.

Looking forward to seeing some pics!

Welcome aboard! I'm still fully content to use my K20D after almost three years. It's an excellent piece of equipment.

As for lenses, depending on your budget you can go with older Pentax primes, newer kit lenses, or more expensive (and optically better) lenses like the Pentax or Sigma 17-70. Get yourself a fast prime, also, and you'll find a new world of low light photography opening for you.

A battery and charger come cheap for this camera, but should do you well.
eBay is a great resource for that.
I had one for sale myself but was sold quickly...
Enjoy the forum.
