Hi from the Red River Valley...

I just found this forum. It's great there is a forum just for Pentax users.

I have a Pentax K200D, which was given to me as a Christmas gift a few years ago. I also inherited Dad's Pentax SLR camera. I don't remember how old it is, but it is at least 25 years old. Feel as I am still learning how to use them.

I do have a couple questions regarding lenses.

1. Is there a lens just for macro photography? If so, is there one that fits the Pentax K200D?

2. I currently have a zoom that goes from 18-200mm. I would like one that goes to 400 or more. There are a lot on the Internet, and it's a little overwhelming. I'm wondering what y'all suggest as a good lens that's also affordable. I have found this lens on several sites: 420-1600 Lens for Pentax by Kenko. It's model is listed as Vari 420-800mm f/8.3-16.0. It says it comes with a 2x teleconverter. Does anyone know anything about this lens?

Thanks y'all for your help.
