Got any? Lemme know what ya got, and how much or trade ya want.

They don't have to be digital specific (DA series) nor Pentax-brand only.
I'll look at vivitars, Tamrons, Sigma's, etc...

I got an old K mount telephoto lens that doesn't support autofocus. I could use a trade for one that does while supporting full frame 35mm.

As for it's quality, here's how my old telephoto looks on the K2000 (colors altered)

I use an A3000 and K2000 SLR Pentax (film and digital).

I was thinking of getting the wife a K2000 - mebbe even the limited edition white one!

I shoot a K20D - got it for Xmas what a freaking camera - I absolutely LOVE it, and especially that I can use 20-30-year old lenses on it, no adapter required. One of my mainstays is a fully manual (zoom, focus, and aperture) Vivital 70-150mm lens with Macro!

You can usually find the Pentax SMC-F 28-80 pretty cheap, on the order of $20-30 on fleaBay, and Adorama / B&H used departments. keh.com also has some cheap older lenses.

What telephoto range were you thinking of?

If you have a Ritz Camera / Wolf Camera store nearby, they had a Sigma dual-lens kit on clearance a couple months back. Model number for the kit is I think V9945 - check and see if you can find one. Decent enough for the $150 they were asking for both.
