Hi from Vermont. I've been a user of Pentax equipment since I bought my first Spotmatic in 1970. I switched to a Nikon Coolpix 8800 compact camera the past 4 years because I love working with digital images. I was waiting for Pentax to come out with a digital SLR that would meeet all my needs and be worth the expense and the K20D is that camera. My old manual lenses work fine in manual but I'd like to purchase a good quality auto focus lens that would stay on the camera most of the time. I take a lot of insect closeups so am leaning toward the Sigma f2.8 17-70. It has a great review in popphoto and close-focuses to 1:1.9 in their tests. I see one reviewer here reported autofocusing problems with this lens so I'd like to hear about other users experiences with it. Ron

I do not have the lens in question but thought I would send out a friendly welcome. So... Welcome to the board Ron!
