hello from frankfurt

Hello my Name is Max. I have been an amateur Pentax user for about 6 years now. My father introduced my to Pentax and even though most of my friends have different brands and equipment seems to be hard to find, I really love my K3. I am hoping to get more insights here and probably some good advice which lenses to buy next. I am especially looking for some good tele lens options, anything around up to 300/400 mm. I like shooting animals and landscapes. Still need to warm up to portraits...

welcome aboard......usually see folks talk about the da300 with a 1.4 teleconverter but they all seem to have the disposable income of George Clooney

Willkommen Max! There are some good deals on older 400mm f/5.6 lenses. I have the K version that serves me well. 300mm lenses are too short and 500mm + lenses are usually too heavy. Looking forward to seeing some of your images.
