Hello, from Thailand.

Hello, I'm from Thailand. I have just got my own first camera, Sony A5100, mirror less, and I'm very interested in Pentax manual focus prime lenses. Now, I'm using a SMC Pentax 50mm f1.4 instead the kit lens and looking for a longer length one.

Welcome aboard, there are a LOT of choices in the K-mount universe. The 100mm macros are very nice.

The Carl Zeiss Jena Sonnar MC 135mm f3.5 is very interesting for me right now, but the export version, "aus Jena", is making me doubtful. Anyway, I'm learning about these, I'm a newbie.

Welcome from Iowa!
Anything in the M series is a good bet. Fairly cheap and real well made. Got a m135 F3.5 works great! Of course there's also the K's, the A's, Tacumars and all third party brands! Lens buying addiction is awesome!

Sawasdee from a California-born Thai. I'm a big fan of the M series. There's a ton of great information and lens samples here on PF to help you in your quest.
