I purchased this lens from Ebay awhile ago. It is a Tamron 28-105mm AF 1:4-5.6 (IF). The lens was reasonably priced, and brand new in box with full warranty. Interestingly, all of the Exif data shows this lens to be a Pentax FA 28-105mm. Were the two lenses manufactured together? Would anyone know why there is a connection between the two lenses?

I am amazed at the versatility of this lens (DA L 55-300mm). I am just learning, so I don't do the lens justice. But, I really love it and hope to keep improving.

This is my first post to the lens club. This lens is an older generation 90mm with macro. I have tried to find it listed in the lens reviews, but not sure it's there. I am really enjoying the lens, and hope to get better with experience.

I just upgraded to the K-5 and found a deal at London Drugs in Canada (both instore and online) for $999.99, body only. I added one WR lens (18-55) for $1,149.99. The website says these prices (and there are other K-5 and lens combo deals) will be in effect until Dec.26.

I read this thread today, and have to add that recently I watched the Beatles in A Hard Day's Night, and to my delight, there was Ringo in the famous walk about scene snapping away with a Pentax SLR. He even had some extra gear with it to attempt a shot with the camera sitting on a rock (it fell off the rock into the water). I also seem to remember another scene of the other Beatles in a limo, and one of them (maybe George Harrison) was holding a Pentax and shooting out the limo's window at the screaming girls. Memories from a long time ago....

Hello to Everyone!

Well, what can I say, but this is such an honor to be allowed a part on this forum! I have loved photography for over 30 years, and have shot on a film SLR for most of them. I admit that I succumbed to the "instant" camera as I raised my family, however I never gave up on my SLR and would grab for it often. Now I have entered the digital age and am totally amazed at what can be done digitally. Wow! To be able to see a shot, decide to keep it or let it go... I would have never dreamed it possible! I have started this new era in a modest way, by deciding on a K-x with a 2 lens kit. I'm not ashamed to admit that this will be enough to keep me guessing for awhile! And I still grab for my film SLR whenever I am in need of comfort.

Thanks to all of you for your amazing insights and expertise! However... I am staying up WAY TOO LATE reading them all... but please keep them coming!!
