Long Pentax lenses

HI All
I'm new to pentax lenses and bodies.
Bought my first a week or so ago, and was astonished by the IQ.
I use my new lenses on a canon 400D body.
I couldn't be happier!
Especially my new Vivtar 120-600 f3.5 lens!

Cheers

Would you mind posting images of the lens and some taken with it. Just curious about such a beast.


Welcome to pentax. I too am a former canon user.

Welcome to Pentax and the forums!
Awesome, sounds like a great lens. Lots of people here use third party and legacy glass and there are many threads about all kinds of lenses

Welcome from a fellow South African. Pentax kit is great and this is a super forum with lots of knowledge available and many helpful members. Whereabouts are you based?

Well, I can't beat the IQ, but low funds don't allow me to take the full plunge to buy a body.....yet

Ah! The Good old Cape. :-) I'm a bit further north in Durbs. Some nice shots with that Vivitar!
