Hello from Toronto

Hello everyone! I bought a pentax k20d several months back with a pair of lenses and have been loving them. I ran into this site as I was trying to search up reviews on some 18-250 and 28-300 lenses, I want one so I won't have to switch back and forth from my 18-55 and 50-200 so much. I already found quite a few threads on here about those topics which have been very helpful. I think I'm going to spend a lot of time on here reading and learning!


I've attached one of my recent pictures from a museum in Santiago, Chile.

Make sure you post in the Canadian thread. There appears to be an active semi-unofficial Pentax Forums group in your area as well. I'm sure some of them will chime in.

Hi Diego, welcome to this forum! I guess you've seen the lens review section, with comments on all kind of lenses: Lens Review Section?

Welcome aboard.

I was in the same boat as you with the kit lenses, wanted to have that "all in one" lens, but I'll let you in on a little secret - you'll always want just one more lens.

From the 18-55 & 50-200, I've now accumulated the DA*16-50 (GREAT lens), a Sigma 18-200, a Sigma 70-300 (not the greatest lens but good for what I paid for it), and I've now got a FA50/1.4 enroute. The DA*50-135 is definitely on my wish list, as well as the DA*300.

Welcome to the world of LBA......hold on to your wallet and enjoy the ride.
