Hi Everyone,

I've just joined ClubSnap and am quite green to photography--got my first dSLR (K100D+kit lens) around mid April this year. Have been experimenting with my new toy ever since and it has given me great joy and a sense of achievement as I began to get the hang of shooting in M and Av modes. Will upload a handful of my better snapshots when I get home. :D

Heard from a friend that Pentaxian is a closely knitted community and I look forward to learn from you guys along the way.

Key interests include landscape, night shots, macro and portrait.

Been trying to find a 50mm prime for a while but to no avail, anyone knows where I can get one for a reasonable price [<$400 thereabout] (2nd hand's good too :D)?


Cheers,
Ian

Welcome! I saw FA50/1.4 at Cathay Photo @ Peninsula a couple of weeks ago, quoted for $399. Maybe you can check it out there :) Good luck.

Oh btw, my nick is my name. Or you can call me Frank ;)

Hi Ian

Welcome! And a 50 mm prime for less than $400 is definitely not a problem. Even new, I think you can get a FA 50 mm f1.4 for less that price. Try Orient Photo at Sim Lim Square, MS Colour in AMK. Of course, you can also source for a whole series of K, M, A series of 50mm that would be compatible with your DSLR, all of which will be below that price. ;)

Welcome to the Pentax users club. Your friend is absolutely correct. If you ever join our outings, you can see for yourself to believe. :)

Welcome! If you look hard enough, definitely you can find a 50mm in the shops. You can also post at our Buy & Sell forum.:)

I had k100d for about 3-years, though I am now with K20D only, it had given me great joy too... welcome! I got to tell U, some of the best pictures I ever had was still from my K100D.

welcome to the rebellion! :)
the 50mm f/1.4 is a good lens although its prices have appreciated somewhat due to the stronger yen. Monitor the buy-sell section as they occasionally appear there. ;)
