Default Lenses made for Pentax (websites???)

Does anyone know of any really good websites that have lenses made for Pentax K-7, preferably one that would give some pros and cons, perhaps sample pictures... I am not having the most product time finding what I want. I just would like to know which lenses have a good rating and perhaps a review.

All the best.

If you want some detailed explanations of the various types of Pentax K-mount lenses along with specifications of various lenses that Pentax has made over the years, try http://kmp.bdimitrov.de/ - it's a great resource but doesn't have reviews.

Another source for reviews (granted, they are brief and personal opinions) you can also try http://stans-photography.info/ - another good source, especially when it comes to older lenses.

If LBA hits you and you decide to explore the wide world of manual focus lenses that can be mounted to a Pentax camera you might try this forum. Lots of MANUAL FOCUS lenses reviewed and discussed here.

One of the neat things about buying a Pentax is you join the Pentaxian community. We are all a bunch of friendly people who are very willing to share our opinions, experiences and help out a fellow Pentaxian.
