Hello to all,
I'm a newwby to digital after a lifetime of amateur 35mm film.

Have purchaced a K100d & have been reading all of your imfo & appreciate all the help available.

Now there's a bucketfull of lenses available out there on the web & good advice on them all, BUT NO ONE LISTS THE ONES TO STAY AWAY FROM!!!!!!!!

I'm looking for a good macro plus a zoom up to 300mm / 500mm ?????

All the best to all, Wal'

Not all too many Pentax lenses are poor in quality, but those that are will be rated appropriately in the reviews section.

The longest good zoom I can recommend is the FA 80-320mm; you won't find anything with AF in the 500mm area.

There are a lot of people here that are fantastic with macro photos, so you should get some good advice.
