Learning Pentax: A Lens for Every Photographer

This is a video done by Pentax USA with one of their sponsored Pentaxians, Kerrick James. Superbly done, and if you are new to the world of interchangeable lenses, give yourself the 6 min to see it through. If not for the informative presentation of what the lenses are and how to use them, but the excellent scenery as well. I promise you'll learn something!

Feel free to pass this around to your friends too!

That's pretty interesting and makes me with Pentax had some nice WR lenses on the long side! I was surprised that he did not mention the WR capabilities of some of the Pentax lenses.

On the main page, under "recent forum discussions" I read: "Learning Pentax: A Lens for Every..." and I thought about the A series lenses for every need / day, etc. haha
I ve seen the video. I actually think it was too shallow but the scenary is outstanding for sure

TFS, Alex. I believe it was posted earlier, but it is interesting to see it again. Wish I had one of each lens he talked about. My son (in WA) has the blue K30 and he loves it. He, my grandson, and I will be taking a little road trip to Yellowstone in August. I have the K20.
