Lena Question

Hello. I recently purchased a Pentax *ist DS with the 18-55 DA kit lens. I am really pleased with the performance. of the camera. I saw an ad at Abe's of Maine for a close out Sigma 7-210 manual zoom. I realize that focusing will be manual, but what feature will be available with the DS other than complete manual exposure ?
thanks for your help...

Welcome to the forums Charles.

Your question should be posted in the Pentax SLR Lens Discussion forum as that is what your questions relates to. This particular forum is for site announcements.

Adam, is there a way for mods to move threads? I don't see it in the thread options.

You should be able to move threads and posts from the dropdowns at the top and bottom of this page.

I'll move the thread right now.

u should keep pretty much everything usefull except the ability to let the camera autofocus for u..

thow thinking about it u do lose the cameras proper flash function with a full manual lens..

personally i like autfocus and even thow i have manual lenses the loss of autfocus is enough to mean i never use them.. but others like the idea..
