Introduction

Hello everyone,

My name is Bas and I just registred onto the Pentax forum. I Have a Pentax K3 for a year and a half now and I am verry satisfied with it.
At this moment I only own an 18-135mm lens but I am surching for some aditional lenses (a good macro and a prime lens).

Greatings,

Bas

Welcome from Chicago, Bas!

I got a K3II last December and have been learning its differences from the K5. I have two macro lenses, for different purposes, 100mm and 28mm.

The K3 is a great camera for macro! Enjoy!

Welcome to the forums, Bas - good to have you on board The K3 is a fine camera and my main workhorse

The DFA100 f/2.8 is a really excellent macro lens, depending on your purposes - weather resistant, too, and makes a great portrait lens also. Or, if you're after something wider, the DA35 f/2.8 is another great choice, and doubles as a good general purpose lens with impressive IQ. There's a review just been posted by the PF staff here.

Hi Bas. Welcome to the Pentax forums. Glad to hear that you are enjoying your K-3. There is a good choice of macro's and primes to be had. Good luck.

Thanks, I think I will buy the 35 mm limited. From the article it looks like the lens I was searching for.
Let's hope that will be the case.

I'm sure you'll love it. All of the Limited lenses are very special - not perfect (no lens is), but special. Let us know if or when you get it!
