Hi everybody!!

I never know what to say for things like this.

Hi!!! I hope that everyone is well!
I shoot with a Pentax K-m and have just started using manual lenses. I've only started using them and only have two at the moment both Pentax 50mm. An F1:1.7 and F1:2 and I'm looking for to get a 28mm F2.8 at the moment. At the end of the day I'm here to learn and I'm happy to get suggestions, especially for manual lenses.

I just picked up the Pentax SMC 28/2.8, and it hasn't left my camera now for 3 months, and it does not look like that is going to change. I don't use the 50 1.7 any more, though it has seen its use. I only have a 5 yr old *ist ds at this time.

Welcome to the forum.
You have a fine little camera.
For MF lens use on the K-m, look through the articles section via the tab above for more information, and ask your unanswered questions in the Beginners forum.

Welcome to the forums and you'll find lots of great advice on old lenses here. Plus check the marketplace for some lenses you might want. Get a genuine Pentax adapter and add Takumars to your list. it's addictive.
