Hi from Central oregon

Reviving my interest in photography. Just got a brown K-r with 18-55 kit lens. Snagged a mint SMC 50mm f1.7 and a SMC 200mm f4 on the way via e-bay. Also have a Sears 135mm macro from shop goodwill on the way that was a whopping $6.00 plus shipping. Love that all these cheap vintage lenses can be used. Sort of a Pentax loyalist after my first digital camera, the Optio 330GS which I still have. This forum has been an awesome resource for information. Finally got around to registering.

Just got the 50mm today and started shooting a few test shots. I like the lens.

Welcome to the forum, good to have you on board. The next lens to look for would be a good Macro lens llike the Sigma 105mm F2.8 Macro.
