Pentax Waterproof K30 - Need assistance
 
Ok, getting into this taking pictures thing while fishing and have graduated to a DSLR based on previous members posts.

Recently purchased an entry level waterproof Pentax K30 and would like assistance from members that can guide me to a local supplier of equipment ie; lenses. It appears the internet has eliminated most mom and pop stores.

If there is a local store to the Knoxville area I would like to keep business local and would appreciate recommendations.

Need a Weather Proof Telephoto 60-250 mm F/4 and a Micro/Macro FA 100mm F2.8 to add to my kit.

Thank You,

Breck

I have a pentex dslr also. great cameras. does yours have the stabilization built into the camera body or do you have to buy stabilization lense? Wolf Camera is always a resource to find lense. If you have the stabilization built into the body of the camera look into the tameron lenses. good quality lower $$$$.

Wolf Camera went out of business, and the only true local photography store I can think of is Thompson Photo. Been there a few times for specialty items, but they are a bit pricey...

Flyred06 and ChemE,

Yes to the stabilization in the camera.

I am on the hunt for a great deal on the 60-250mm and FA 100mm lenses.

Had tough conditions today and the K30 got wet. Performed well in the hands of a novice. I am in the pursuit of great pictures of great days on the water!!!!

Thank You Gentleman.

Thompsons may seem pricey but they are good. I have a couple of pentax i boight there but not your model. Thompson photo supply. The late Eddie ThomPSON was a life long smokies fisherman and the founders of the company took many of the photos which helped get the GSMNP created. They deserve our business IMO.

Joe and all the above Thank You. Called them (Thompsons)and nothing in stock. Ordered both off Amazon and got a great deal!!!

Absolutely incredible glass. Got a lowepro waterproof back pack as well. Can't wait to get out to a blue line!!

Will post pics soon.

Can't wait to see some pics posted. I love my pentax they make excellent photos. Post some soon and it gives you an excuse to go fishing. Lol

Flyred, I will take your advise immediately. Are you in the area of Knoxville by chance?

No I am in Gadsden Alabama. I manage the facilities of three warehouses in Knoxville and will be up there next week or the next for a few days but other than that I just stay around Alabama.
