Will the SMC DA* 50-135 mm f2.8 ED IF SDM suffice as an only lens?
Nov 19, 2012

I am getting ready to upgrade to a DSLR from a Fuji Finepix S9100--scornfully described by the guy in the camera shop as "just a fancy point and shoot."

Based on the reviews I've read, I'm leaning toward buying a Pentax K-5 body and pairing it with an SMC DA* 50-135 mm f2.8 ED IF SDM zoom lens.

My question is, if this is the only lens I have for a while, will I be able to take pictures in most typical outdoor and indoor shooting situations? I realize that the lens won't provide macro or wide angle, but will I encounter other significant limitations?

Thanks--
