Hi to you too fritzthedog.

Im new in this thing. Could anyone suggest what lens should I have if I were into potrait and landscape. I thought of getting 1 prime 50mm and another 1 50-200mm or 50-300mm for telephoto. At the moment I have 18-55mm kit lens. In Malaysia,Pentax is a bit new entry DSLR,hard for me to get used lens. Would anybody care to suggest which seller have a reasonable prive used lens.

most of the UK folks swear by Chris@srs (member here) don't know if they ship to Malaysia though, but there's b&H Stateside....

the 50 1.4 is a great lens and I suspect the 50-200 would be useful to you in Malaysia...

good choices both, I haven't used the 55-300 myself...

Hi, and welcome to the forum. The 55-300 is a good lens use it myself, with good results (when I get it right)

Welcome to the forum Izwan. It's worth checking ebay for used 50mm lenses, and the f1.4 one is perhaps the best, but I would recommend having a go with some of the old manual ones. Particularly the 50mm f1.7. If you struggle with how to use it on the K-x, we're always ready to help out!

Welcome! I felt very welcome in your country when I visited half a year ago. Didn't go to KL, though. Maybe next time...
