Learning new skills

Have been using compact camera for some years. Very impressed by the quality of SLR. I have just bought a K200d with kit len. I plan to get some M primes to learn some new skills.

Welcome to the world of digital, where you can exeriment to your heart's content and delete what you don't like without having to pay for film processing. It's a big reason I took the plunge into the DSLR world.

The M primes are easy to find at a good price and give you so many more options...

Welcome to the forum kyet.
Might catch up with you in Sydney soon...

Congrats on your K200D - a very decent and capable cam, and you'll have lots of fun with that kit lens. The M primes will sure help you hone in on your manual skills...

All the best with that!

Welcome, kyet. You'll have a lot of fun gathering gear for your new camera. If you browse around here you'll come across a thread started by another Aussie, MoisVous. It's a list of places in Australia where you can buy new and secondhand Pentax gear. Well worth checking out. I can't remember which sub-forum it's on, but you'll find it. Good hunting.

Welcome to the forum! I'm sure you'll enjoy your K200D, and the M lenses are great, not to mention way cheaper than newer lenses. Take a look through the M club and Takumar club threads in the SLR Lens forum. You'll end up wanting all of them. If you're like a lot of us, you may even end up buying all of them
