Hello from Canada!

Just though I'd drop in and say hi! I'm looking forward to seeing what other pentaxians are up to, and getting the low down on shooting with a DSLR.

I currently have the K200D, 18-55mm and 50-200mm lenses- I'm in the market for a 50mm prime though, as I've heard nothing but good things about it and I'd like to start shooting more portraits.

Pawn shops also have an abundance of 50mm primes. Mainly manual focus ones though, since they came with the old cameras. That's how I got mine and I'm plenty happy with it. Looking forward to hearing more from you.

I'm new to this all - but my initial reading suggests that I should get a 50mm (I mostly want to shoot portraits of our first kid - she's supposed to be coming any day now!). There are so many choices with such a wide range of prices. Good luck with your search!

Enjoy the forum.
The most logical choice is to invest a little into the FA 50 f/1.4 lens, which is Pentax's cost-effective solution to low-light and creative photography with autofocus capability.
