Newbie here - N8cas

Hi Everybody,

My name is Nate. I recently purchased the k10d with the 50mm F1.7 Pentax SMC manual focus lens. This is my first DSLR and I hope to learn a lot from this forum. I am a complete beginner - I'm actually thinking of taking a photography course (I took one in High School - but that was 10 years ago).

I bought the camera with aspirations of photographing outdoor/landscape/wildlife and sporting events. I'm actually looking to buy a decent starter lens for the aforementioned. If anyone has some advice or suggestions for me, I would appreciate it. I think I will post a new thread in a different forum to ask for help.

- Nate

Welcome Nate, there are lots of friendly Pentaxians here who are willing to share. Pls don't hesitate to ask. As for the starter lens for your K10, I'd probably go with the DA16-45 not as expensive as the SDM lenses but it delivers a very nice color rendition throughout it's range. Watch for the LBA to kick in, it is addictive.
