Hi Everyone

Morning everyone.

Just joined the site as im doing a course at college and need a little advice. I have just bought a Penntax mx body from ebay and now need to find a lens or two to go with it.

I found a PENTAX-M 50mm f1.7 K Lens on ebay also in apparently good nick with a yrs warranty. They are asking 31 for it. Is this reasonable? Also is there any other lens you could suggest for starting out?

Thanks in advance for all your help.

Welcome to the forum. The M-50mm 1.7 is a great lens. The price doesn't seem too bad, but I'm not familiar with the UK market. Good luck.

Welcome to the forum, lens sounds good, I'd go for that.

Welcome Joel.
Going fully manual? The 50/1.7 is a good choice and the price seems reasonable. Have a look at the forum's lens review database for more manual lenses to suit your needs (you need to decide what focal length range you'd be after).

All the best in that.
