Thanks for this great Forum

Hello everyone. I have been lurking for a couple of months while shopping for a DSLR. I decided and purchased a Pentax K7 and I am thrilled with the camera. Im still trying to learn how to use its many features. The camera and Pentax lenses are far beyond my current skill level. The Forum Lens Reviews have really helped me to purchase and trade for some additional lenses. My favorite 2 lenses now are a Tokina 28-70mm f2.6-2.8, and an SMC-A 50mm f 1.7.

Thanks for all of your participation and help,

K7, ME Super
DA 18-55 WR, DA 55-300

Tokina 28-70mm f2.6-2.8 zoom

Welcome to the forums and sweet kit. Don't sell that 85mm. Learn to use an "M" lens on a DSLR and you'll like that lens.

Welcome here!
Just bought a K-7 myself, so I know what you mean by still trying to learn how to use its many features.
Have fun learning .
