Hello All

I am a newbie to Pentax having just got a K5 and using my old MZ50 lenses which work fine, I also have a 35mm DA f2.4 which is new.
I will be asking questions which may seem basic to some, but my knowledge of digital is very basic and any help would be greatly appreciated.
So greetings to all from JMH-K5

Another Brit. Welcome. And you chose a good camera. It certainly is nice to be able to use those older lenses. You can't do that with other brands.

Welcome to the forum, enjoy that new K5, which is made even more enjoyable... cos you can use your old glass.

Thanks you guys for the welcome.
The MZ AF lenses were the reason for buying a K5 which I bought with an 18-55mm zoom which will be a just in case lens.
Bought the 35mm 2.4 DA because I like a prime for most shots.
