I've been looking around this forum for a couple of weeks now and was amazed at the amount of info available, so here I am.
I took voluntary redundancy a couple of years ago (40 odd years in the construction industry was enough) so have lots of time on my hands. So I decided to take up photography along with my main hobby for the past 25 years of growing fuchsias. The two seem to go hand in hand.
I have had a Pentak K-x for about a month now so I am just a beginner. It came with the usual 18-35mm lens and have also just bought the Pentax 50-200mm lens from SRS Microsystems (£269 in a local camera shop - £150 from SRS- brilliant and fast delivery) I also bought a Vivitar 100mm Macro Lens from another local camera shop, I took the camera in and they made sure the two were compatible , its one of those old fashioned camera shops were the customer's needs are more important than a sale! It seems to work fine on close ups of fuchsias.
Someone tell me a made a wise choice with the Vivitar, I have a tendency to walk before I run.
No doubt be dropping in with lots of newbie questions.
