Pentax *ist addon recommendations

by mr56k / April 14, 2005 11:43 PM PDT

Well I finally got a dslr and purchased the Pentax *ist. It was a bundle deal with a 18-55mm and a 70-300mm lens for $899. I already had a 1GB secure digital so it worked out great. Also the fact that it uses double aa's rather then specialized batteries is huge to me. So since im new to the whole Digital slr field what addons can you recommend?? Also should I invest in any other lens's ? I already have had and use Adobe Photoshop cs for my mac. I also purchased a better printer last month "Epson R300" anticipating this purchase.

Thanks in advance
