I became a pentax dslr user after buying a K-r for my wife while it is being massively discounted in Australia. It turns out that I am obsessed with bokeh and lens buying, an affliction which I gather affects many people on this forum. In fact, it was lens buying which brought me here: I looked at reviews of the Tokina SD 70-210mm before buying it. Shortly after, on that same day, I bought a pentax-f 28-80mm and pentax-f smc 70-210, alongside a film camera I have no idea what to do with.

I then made my first post on this forum to buy a 135mm prime lens from a fellow forum member. Today, I added a 50mm XR rikenon to the collection, and now I reckon I just need to hold out for a 28mm.

Much poorer, I should really just consolidate and actually learn how to use these manual focus lenses. My bad eyesight does not really help, and I have no idea what a diopter is.
