Hello everyone!

Hello everyone! My Name is Justin soon to be owner of a Pentax camera(k10D)! Ive been into photography for awhile now and been spying at the new SLR digicams for sometime( using a Samsung s85 8.2 MP atm) and can't wait for the big change!

Justin welcome aboard.

When I went from fixed lense digicams to a DSLR I found my love of the outdoors increased as I am outside more now than ever.

You are going to enjoy your new camera as it is a very good semi-pro camera. Just looking at pictures on the web show the K10D to be more than capable for the majority of users. I use the older istDs and love the size of the camera, but it in no way has the incredible feature set of your new K10D.

Looking forward to your posts.

-Jeff

Aye i can't wait! Landscapes and outdoor photos are my thing. But Being that im moving away from fixed lens, i worry on which lens to get for landscapes and such.

I hear anything below 40mm is good for wide landscape shots correct?

If you are in the wide, wide world of landscapes, I cannot but highly recommend the SMCP-DA 12-24/4. In 35mm terms, it is an 18-36, roughly. I cannot wait until spring has come and the bears have had their breakfasts so I can climb the "hill" behind me and get that elusive shot my 24-90 on film couldn't quite cover. Unfortunately, on top of mountains, there is no room to Zoom with the Feet!

Thank you for that info! I went around looking for some sample pics of this lens and...SMCP-DA 12-24/4 sample shots

Simply amazing, but the price is a little out of my range at the current time.

Any other suggestions around the 2-300 dollar range?
