New K-5 owner... still some hesitations on lenses !
Aug 30, 2011

Hi !

I just -really, in the last minutes- bought a K-5. Finally. After a loooong time waiting (it's a family thing, we always wait too long for such purchases... for no reasons).

I bought the body only, and now have to make a final decision for my first lenses. For now, I consider myself on "a budget"... so won't be buying DA* right now ! I want WR (plan to hike all year long in Qu├ębec...), but I don't think I'll enjoy that much the kit 18-55mm. I also like to shoot in low light (concerts for example) which is one of the main reason I chose the k-5... So here's what I think I'll be buying soon :

  • 18-135mm WR (From what I read, better than 18-55 + 50-200, right ??)

  • DA 35mm f2.4 (Quite fast and apparently not bad for the price)

What do you think ? I know it is a personnal question, but am I missing something ?

How I see it is that the next lenses (on budget) after that might be :

  • Wide-angle prime OR wide zoom

  • Fast manual primes

Looking forward to your answers !
Thanks a lot for your help !
