Welcome Gulam, that's a fine starter kit you've put together for yourself. Here is a link to a thread that most of our Indian members have posted in; https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/everything-else/24597-pentax-users-india.html

I hope you enjoy the forum.

Hi all,
.
As rightly said finding pentax accessories in India is very difficult. My co worker has been deputed to Connecticut on a short term assignement for one month. One of the compelling reasons to become a pentaxian is to try some old manual lenses. I'm interested to buy a prime lens b/w the range of 90 to 100mm. Can u advise me which one can i go about. Also suggest a place to buy the stuff online so that I get tell my coworker to buy me one.

I need some assistance on :-
1) Brand of lens ( 90 or 100mm prime preferably a manual lens )and the right place to buy
2) A decent price which I can pay out
3) The mount which I need to buy along for K20D

Sorry for making this post a bit lengthy...

Hi, and welcome to the forum, Gulam. Keep checking the Marketplace for older lenses for sale. You can read a lot of reviews of older glass at Pentax M42 Screwmount Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Pentax Lens Database
Then, look to see what's available at The Pentax Marketplace | Sell Pentax | Photographic Equipment for Sale - PentaxForums.com
