Hello from Michigan

New to the Pentax world. Have learned a bunch here in only two days.
First SLR was a Petri I bought in Korea in 1966. Over the years have shot/owned DSLR’s From Nikon and Canon. Currently shooting a Lumix FZ1000 bridge. Like it a great deal.
But, i had an itch to scratch: wanted to satisfy my GAS for a vintage DSLR and ordered A Pentax K10D today from KEH (rated EX).
So, now searching for a minimalist lens kit and open to suggestions.

Welcome, instead of a zoom, also consider some of the autofocus primes, like the DA35/2.4, or the DA 21 Ltd.
