Welcome from a Texan living in Ohio.

When the $$ hit your pocket, my single best piece of advice is buy the amigoes, starting with Miss 77, the Pentax-FA 77mm f 1.8.

For my lens buying, I hear of a new lens, go to the Forum to read lens reviews, and often buy used on eBay. I have had great luck buying from Japanese buyers listing on eBay. Good luck to you, and hope you enjoy the Forum as much as I have enjoyed it!
I just pulled the trigger on a used DA 35mm f2.8 macro Limited for a walkaround lens. I've been using the DA 35mm f2.4 and while it's fantastic for the price, I want a lens that's just plain fantastic. I also keep a Pentax-A 50mm f1.7 and Pentax-M 135mm f3.5 in the bag, but it's rare for me to switch to a lens other than the 35.

It should be good for normal lensing Spain when I leave in May!
