Hello every body

Hi. My name is Jean Marc Ostiguy. I'm living in Boucherville, Québec Canada. I'm a french language Canadian. I used a pentax k-1000 but for now i use a K-X. I try to find a lens for wildlife photos like a 500mm. But i don't want to pay more than the value of my equipment. I don't care to be in manual focus. I search at B&H and Henry's camera in Toronto, but i don't know others online stores for used equipment. Maybe one of you can help about that. For now my lenses are a 18-55 mm pentax, a 50-200 mm pentax, a sigma 70-300 mm. I also have a vivitar 2x teleconverter.

Absolutely, the Marketplace here should be your first place to check. The gear has been cared for.

Also keep an eye on the online classified ads like Craigslist. You'll see a lot of overpriced gear, but once in a while you'll find something worth buying.
