Also, If I got a K100d body, what lense would I need to get that would auto focus with the camera.

The kit lens, the Pentax 18-55mm lens is an autofocus lens as I previously stated. The second lens that would perhaps be a great addition is the Pentax 50-200mm F 4.0 lens, which is also an autofocus lens.

Have a great weekend.

Great. The Super is a better bet compared to the older K100D (non super model), too. The newer Super model supports more lenses (like Sigma's HSM lenses, that will not Autofocus on the older K100D), should you ever want to buy those types of lenses.

Let us know how you like it and post some photos when you get a chance. Make sure to visit our Pentax dSLR forum, too (we have a very active group of Pentax shooters here).
