Hello from India

Hi, I am Dr Ripal K Kotak from India. I am a dentist and am primarily interested in Dental Photography. I have a Pentax K 30 which I bought after a lot of research on the Net. I love my camera. I have the 18 - 55 lens that came with the camera and I have bought a Viltrox JY 670 ring flash. I also have magnification fiters from Hoya. My understanding of photography was limited to point and shoot, however for my profession I needed to buy a DSLR to document cases. I did two basic photography courses here and that helped me a lot on how to use my camera. I still don't know how to use my Viltrox Ring Flash. The booklet that came with it doesn't really explain anything. If anyone knows how to use it, please guide me. A big hello to all members and I hope to contribute as much as I can and learn as much as possible too. I also hope Pentax expands its market in India as all accessories are not readily available here.
Dr RIpal K Kotak

Thank you for your guidance. Will this fit on my Pentax K 30 and can I get it in India?

Yes it certainly will, but it is manual focus lens, but for macro work that's not normally an issue.

The internet is probably where you would find such a lens, as they are no longer in production.

Often this lens is used with these. https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&ua...74115972,d.d2k
