Greetings from North Van.

Hi all,
I've been using Pentax for about five years now - started with the k100d and then upgraded to the K-7 last year. I've got my trusty 50 f2.8 and 12-24 f4 but, I'm looking to go Macro in the next few months.
I'm here to learn!

Welcome! The DA35 ltd is considered a very fine Macro lens that can be had for a reasonable price, especially here this marketplace. Enjoy!

Yeah, just a little north of here, and up against the mountains - over one of the bridges, or across on the ferry.

Welcome Renny! North Van is where I grew up....

Depending on your budget, the weather sealed 100 would be a nice addition. Of course there are lots of great older macros if you don't mind the manual focus thing. I have the M100 and the A*200, so if you're ever over on this side of the pond, let me know as you're welcome to try them out.
