Hello, hoping to be a Pentax user soon...

Hi all,

As the title says, I do not currently have any pentax gear but have been looking into the array of "beginner" DSLRs & have concluded that the K200 looks like the one for me. Hoping to pick one up in 6 weeks or so with the 16-55mm & 50-200mm kit zooms.

Until then, I plan to learn what I can from the more experienced users here.

Welcome! The K200D is a good camera with the 18-55mm & 50-200mm is a great kit.. The 50-200mm is a stellar lens for the price (:

Well, i was going to wait another couple of weeks but as the K200D is fast disappearing from UK shelves (one etailer at a time) I had to make a move as the K-m (itīs "replacement" is too inferior a camera). With the kit lens, Pentax 55-300mm F4-5.8 & a 2 year guarantee for all of it. The 300mm is on order & I should have the lot in 2 weeks.

Canīt wait

Great move....Pentax has a very long history of making great cameras and monumental lenses....and the K200d is terrific. You can get a great K or M lens for cheap.....and if you give it patience (as I just found out how much patience) you can learn it's traits to take great pictures.

Have fun and welcome aboard!
