Hellow from Rhode Island

I have been looking to get a DSLR for a while and recently i decided to make it happen.
Originally i was looking at nikons but was drawn to Pentax for the weather resistance and durability.

I an currently looking at getting
FA 50mm f/1.4
DA 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 AL WR

This will be my first real camera

Welcome to the forums. Nice kit! I was drawn to Pentax for the same reasons a few years ago and still love my K10D. Enjoy your new gear and jump right in here.

Welcome here, and you haven't made a bad choice at all in the K20D and FA 50. The 18-55 is an excellent choice for difficult shooting conditions (weather-wise) given its weather sealing, and should give you years of good results. I can also suggest the DA 50-200 WR for telephoto weather sealing, or better yet the DA 55-300 (though not weather sealed) for extra reach and image quality.
