Hi All

Newbie Pentax user and first post on the forum. Hi all looks like an interesting place to be.

I've come from P&S 12 months ago through the FUJI FinePix HS20EXR Bridge camera to the Pentax K-r DSLR. Here's hoping I've made the right decision

I'm mainly into tabletop still life and some macro but will photograph anything and am very much a DSLR beginner.

I hope to get to know you all over the coming weeks and months.

Ray

Welcome aboard! There are some great old lenses for tripod/still life use where you don't really need quick autofocus. You can get older M or A series for a bargain - and get outstanding Image Quality. Have fun!

The lens database here is very valuable. Figure out what focal lengths are useful to you and which lenses are worth looking for. Then you can set up some watchlists in the marketplace. Of course you never know what you'll find on Craigslist, too.

Hi Ray

Welcome to the Pentax Forums. I used to be on the MyFinePix site. I only joined here a week or so ago when I switched from Samsung to Pentax
