Bucks County PA Pentax neophyte

Hello fellow Pentaxians.
I've already learned a lot from this website and I look forward to learning more. I know there is a great deal more I need to learn.
I'm shooting an ist Dl. I've been using the SMC Pentax-DA 16-45mm F4, which I love.
I just purchased, but have not yet received, an old smc PENTAX-M ZOOM 1:4.5 80mm~200mm, series 1.
As the title suggests, I'm pretty new to photography. I work with a limited budget, and so am slowly gathering a kit of new and used equipment.
I am open and eager for advice, and encourage those with something to share. I'm not here because I know a lot; I'm here because I want to know as much as I can.

Welcome! I too came into photography with the same mindset of working with a budget and slowly building my used (some new) lens collection. After a little over a year I still have my Kx and about 10 lenses. This marketplace is a great place to find really good used lenses. Enjoy!

I thought it would be appropriate to post this here.
In the short time since I discovered this website, I have learned more than in the few years that I have had my *istDL. Because of this site, I understand my camera better, I understand photography better, I understand Pentax and their history better. I've also learned a great deal about lenses that I was completely clueless of before joining here.
Thank you, pentaxforums. Seriously, sincerely, thank you.
