Hi I bought my first dslr/camera last week. (K 30)

I was looking at cheap lenses to get me started and was wondering if the make mattered? If I bought a nikon lens with af with the correct adaptor would it still work?

I was looking at manual lenses but I think im to new for that as I dont have a clue.

Cheers Daniel

You might be better off starting with the Pentax 18-55mm.

I have that and a 50mm manual lens.
But I wanted something with more zoom.
Just cant afford something to expensive at the moment.

Thanks Daniel

Then the Pentax 50-200mm should fit the bill. Not too expensive new and likely to be very reasonable second hand.
Best regards, John

You can pick up a Tamron or Sigma 70-300mm for 40-60.
This will introduce you mid to long telephoto without breaking the bank, co-incidentally I have a Tamron 70-300mm for sale 50 including post to UK

Thanks for your help.

I will have to have a think about that. Sounds like a good deal though.

No rush, it's a spare, it's not going anywhere - just trying to help a newbie out.
