Hi everyone. My name is Tracy and i have a few questions about my camera. I am use to using a canon, but had it stolen. I now own a Pentax k10d and do not know much about it. I was wondering what lens would work with my camera?

" Pentax introduced the K-mount in 1975 and it's still the mount used in today's digital SLR cameras. Over the course of its 40-year history, the K mount has gone through several enhancements to facilitate new camera features. Even then, a K-mount lens from 1975 will mount on and work on your Pentax DSLR today! In fact, Pentax users are among the few who have access to such a wide range of legacy lenses.

Chattanooga is beautiful country. With the mountains being a part of the area, lots of different things to see and photograph! I live in the north part of the Atlanta area and we try to get to Chattanooga once or twice a year since it's not that far.

Welcome to the forums! Aslyfox has already given you a lot to look at, I'm sure The K10D is still a wonderful camera, I have one and love to use it despite it not being "the latest and the greatest". Those older cameras had a different sensor technology (called CCD) which seems to have been tailored to bring beautiful colors out of any scene.
