Beginner: Do I need another lens? Which one?

Personally, as someone who learned to take pictures way back in analog times 29 years ago, it would always be the 2/35.
Thats one quite compact, leightweight and fast lens which wont break the bank.
Replacing one zoom with another of almost the same range because of a "higher" quality is IMO not as necessary as having a fast prime at hand.0
You would be surprised what can be done with. After all, until 15 years ago nearly all SLR came with a bog standard 50mm lens and most people started their photographic experiences with one without being limited in any way.
The Pentax 2/35 is the reason I am keeping my trusty K100D Super, even though I went over to Olympus by selling my K10D.
Its nice to have a fast lens at hand for those times when a zoom doesnt cut it.

You are so right!
A couple of decades ago I had the opportunity to see one of his prints.
It was so awesome, both what the picture showed and how it was executed.
Thats what you get when one is a craftsman and an artist.

Really Bad eBay and Paypal Experience

My experience with both ebay and its daughter paypal is that they dont care much for any seller and usually answer in a typicall way with stereotype letters.
Well, the seller needs ebay, the buyer can shop everywhere.
My on big and serious bad experience let me vow never again to accept sending an uninsured parcel because its cheaper for the buyer (and Boy, how they cry about every Euro they might have to spend on postage), no matter how the buyer claims to accept responsibility for this choice:
If the parcel gets lost or even only late, the buyer can lodge a complaint with paypal and gets his money back.
This is because the seller can show only a post office receipt without the buyers name and adress - a consequence of the buyers request for cheap mailing - and paypal doesnt care whether the buyer specifically asked for this way.
Its the sellers fault and he pays.
So down under sits a guy who expects a delivery of bicycle parts worth Euro 180,- and he already got his money back....

How have you set up your K100D?

I have to try this, too.
The one major bug of the k100D Super:
I cant use ISO-Auto, because with using the EV-compensation the camera always sets default at ISO 200.
I never understood why.

Other settings for jpeg:
EV- compensation -1/3 to -2/3
Contrast -2
Sharpness +1
Saturation +2
