DA* 16-50 over 18-55 WR Kit Lens?
Sep 4, 2011

Hi all,

I am planning to purchase a K5 and have read good things about the bundled kit lens. I was wondering if it's still worth getting the DA* 16-50 to go with the K5 as my all-rounder lens?

Can anyone tell from experience (not laboratory test) how those two compare in real life? Two things which put me off slightly are the high price and weight of the DA* - is the improvement in image quality and wide angle worth the sacrifice?

Many thanks.
