Both girls were very impressed with the pictures, but refused to admit that my setup was better than what they had. But then, they're both early 20s girls who are used to being right.

My first love is portraits and I wanted a fast portrait lens for indoor shooting without a flash. This combination is absolutely perfect.

I was offered the opportunity to pick out a camera for Christmas, and I chose the Pentax K-5 II2 (and the DFA 77mm lens). My oldest daughter is a Nikon shooter and my youngest daughter uses Canon equipment. I thought, after doing the appropriate amount of research, I'd be choosing one or the other. But, the more I read, the more it seemed like I'd be getting more for my money with Pentax.

I love the camera, and it's been amazing. The 77mm lens is a great indoor portrait lens and I've got some head-turning pictures during the holidays.

I couldn't be happier!

I'm now looking to add the DA 200 mm (although I'm tempted by what I see written about the 300mm). My son is a cheerleader for the University of Wisconsin, and I'd like to be able to capture him as he's cheering at indoor basketball games. Thus, the faster lens is more appealing.

Glad that this forum is available!
