Hello from Austin, TX

Hey folks,
I've been a Pentax owner for ever and on this board for some time now. Just wanted to say hello since I've been a lurker for the most part. I just upgraded my K-7 and K50 and got the K-1 which I love! I'm just now getting serious about learning how to shoot in manual and the K-1 has been a charm. Waiting patiently for new lens so I can start offloading some of my older DA lenses that I've accumulated over the years. A question for you K-1 owners, are there a few recommended older FA lenses that have AF that you would recommend? Any feedback greatly appreciated.

The F 35-70 is cheap, readily available, and very good.

(I've only tried it on a K-30, though)
