Hello from Qualicum Beach, BC, Canada

I have been visiting the forum for some time, and enjoyed and learned a lot about equipment and technique. Started two years ago with the K-7 with the kit lens 18-55 wr. Sold both and bought the K-5 with the 18-135mm lens, which I found to be good, when using the right settings.
I now have the following:
Pentax M 28mm F2.8
Pentax M 50mm F1.7
Pentax DA 18-135 mm F3.5-5.6
Pentax DAL 55-300mm F4-5.8
Vivitar 1.4X Tele Converter, which works well with the DAL 55-300mm, obtains auto focus, and don't loose sharpness.
Happy shooting,
