Hello and welcome to the Forums. Be sure to post some shots. There are several challenges here to keep you busy monthly, and weekly as well. They are a good way to meet others here

Me too have been reading others' posts but this is the first time I'm writing one myself. I've Pentax K-5 and some lenses such as a kit zoom (18-55), pancake 40/2.8 and Pentax 17-70 mm. I noticed that my 17-70 mm zoom had suddenly stopped working. When I try to take pictures with this lens, the camera does not focus and battery goes down drastically. Any idea what could be the case of this malfunction?

Hello Dhaka. I know it seems overwhelming at first, but after a while you'll get a feel for where things are. If you post your questions in the lens forum here, you'll get much faster responses. Good luck with your lens.
