I went to Abe of Maine shop to buy K-R body and thought of shopping for lens online. The shopkeeper gave me a good bundled deal. He advised me to take the 18-200 mm sigma AF for pentax saying its a very good lens and convenient as i dont need to change 2 lenses. i also bought with the bundle high speed SD card and also UV filters ( Nikura).

I have started taking picutres and learning step by step. To me the pictures look good but not sure if i got a good lense. I tried to take picture to blurr the background and focus on the object but i am not getting it. Not sure if this lense is no good or do i need 2 seperate lenses....i am very confused. please advice

I tried to use AV mode and set the f value at the lowest when trying to zoom. I set the iso settings auto. I am not able to blurr the background. Any tips will be very useful. I use sigma 18-200mm and K-R Boday

I am planning to buy new. I have decided on pentax k-r body . i am confused if i have to buy 18-55 and 55-200/55-300 or just 18-200 directly. I have not used dslr and this is my first buy. so i am unsure about it. Your response will be very helpful.


Apologize for using big font. I did not realize it. I pasted the contents from website and did not alter them.

Dear users- I am in the process of converting myself from point and shoot to digital slr. I like pentax model as i have been using the bridge camera for some time. Could you please suggest which would suit me. K-X or K-R? I read in the forum there is a FF issue with KR. I would like to shoot outdoors /my family and kids.....

Thanks
