Hello from Florida!

Hi everyone! I have been reading the forums for a long time, but finally decided to register so I could have access to the marketplace, haha. I have owned my k01 for a few years now, and have been enjoying its unique design and image qualities. I'd like to start shooting indoor action shots (like boxing and mma), and was wondering what sort of lenses people would recommend?

Welcome to the forums. The Pentax 150 to 450 is a capable telephoto lens. I have a Sigma 150-500 for Pentax, but it is no longer made. Below are some Pentax lens shortcuts.

DA 50-200mm F4-5.6 ED WR | Ricoh Imaging

PENTAX DA 18-270mm F3.5-6.3 SDM | Ricoh Imaging

HD D FA 150-450mm f/4.5-5.6 ED DC AW | Ricoh Imaging

Welcome, not the easiest branch of photography to start out with... due to the all the shutter speed and lack of light issues that go with the world of indoor sports, so good luck, remember to enjoy your photography.
