    I am considering buying a digital SLR - I have only been doing photography for a few months - but am already suffering with massive bills for the developing - to find only about 5% of the photos are actually any good!!

    I was wondering about use with lenses... if I buy digital can I use my existing lenses? They are fairly old "pentax" lenses (70-210mm and a 50mm)

    or would I need to buy new "digital" lenses??

    thanks for any advice...

    You can use the lenses you have now on a DSLR as long as they fit. Pentax makes a DSLR, the *istD. I have one and like it a lot. But if you only have 2 lenses, I would recommend shopping around and making sure that there isn't another model you just absolutely love that isn't Pentax.
