Hi

Hi,
I am new in the forum. I am artist, doing photography as a hobby.
I own Pentax MX and thinking to buy K5 - learn how to cross lenses between this 2 cameras, eventually which Pentax lenses to buy with K 5 whether from Pentax or Samyang or another producer. All comments on this problematic is welcome.
Cheers to all.

As the first reply said, have a look at the threads and ask your questions in the Beginners Corner of this Forum, Pentax Beginner's Corner Q&A - PentaxForums.com or the Pentax film threads Pentax Film SLR Discussion - PentaxForums.com. You'll probably get more attention there than here in the Welcomes & Introductions section.

Other than that, have a look through the photographic section of your nearest second-hand bookshop. There should be many older photographic books that were written in the film era, and they're still good advice for digital shooters, in many respects.
