Greetings from Hammond, Wisconsin


I have a K10D camera with 2 Pentax lens: 1:4-5.6 50-200 mm and 1:3.5-5.6 18-55mm. The next lens I want to buy is a telephoto macro lens. I would like to hear recommendations on macro lens for my camera...and, they don't have to be new, I would be interested in older, manual lens that work with my camera.

I've been a photographer since the early 70's, using Minolta 35mm cameras for many years before getting a Canon PowerShot A95 digital camera, last year I moved up to the K10D.

Since I live out in the country, my favorite subject matter is nature, birds hold a special interest, but I'm really looking forward to getting into macro photography.

Looking forward to posting some photos here and trading ideas and tips with other K10D users.
