Congrats and enjoy!! But what about lenses?
One step at a time. I'll be evaluating what glass I need as I get used to the new camera. For now I have the 28-105 kit lense, a few old manual lenses from the past, and a k-mount adapter for my Meade ETX90.

My short list of lenses (in no particular order) to look at right now:

smc PENTAX D-FA Macro 50mm F2.8
smc PENTAX-D FA Macro 100mm F2.8 WR
HD PENTAX-D FA 21mmF2.4ED Limited DC WR
HD PENTAX-FA 31mmF1.8 Limited
HD PENTAX-FA 43mmF1.9 Limited
smc PENTAX-FA 50mm F1.4
HD PENTAX-D FA 24-70mm F2.8 ED SDM WR
HD PENTAX-D FA 70-210mm F4 ED SDM WR
HD PENTAX-D FA★ 70-200mm F2.8ED DC AW
HD PENTAX-D FA★ 85mmF1.4ED SDM AW

I'm not made of money so I'll be looking to rent and borrow some of the above for evaluation so wish me luck :-) Right now I'm trying to decide on either a 50mm macro or 100mm macro as the first test.

Another welcome from NZ!
Thats a great first camera coming from film - at least the fields of view are the same! I'm sure you will enjoy the low light capabilities of the K-1ii!

Quite a lens wish list and they are all great lenses. As usual a lot of it will likely come down to the balance of:
* Preference working with primes or zooms
* Small versus big (but improved performance)
* What feels good
* Budget.

The DFA 28-105, is a very good all round lens. Its my go to for traveling light or in bad weather. You will have your own priorities but personally I enjoy primes and love the FA limiteds (and hopefully soon DFA limited!) which I carry walking.
