Hi, greetings from Surabaya, Indonesia.

Recently I got a used K100Ds kit and some M lenses, but know nothing on how to make good pictures. I think this forum is the right place to start the right thing.

Ready to learn from you guys, on how to make wonders from these little gems.

Welcome to the world of Pentax. The products are amazing in function and form. You will learn much here, as I have, for there are some very smart and generous resources. First thing though is to go out and get some photos. Feel the enjoyment of photography! Then consult your camera for feedback. After you have taken some images hit the info button on the back of the camera (just above the playback button) a few times and you will see different levels of information about how the image was captured.

Learn to interpret this information (we will help you if needed) and you will get a great photography lesson with every photo.

Enjoy the gems!
