Decisions, decisions.....
7 months ago

Trying to cure myself of LBA - Lens Buying Addiction. Figured I would start by selling off some of my lenses. Here are my (current!) cameras and lenses:

Cameras:

  • Pentax K-500 [Some day a K-3]
  • Pentax K-01 [Keeper!]

Lenses in order of wide to telephoto:

  • Pentax-DA 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL II
  • Pentax-DA 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3 ED AL [IF]
  • Tamron SP AF 24-135mm f/3.5-5.6 AD Aspherical [IF]
  • Pentax-F 50mm f/1.7
  • Pentax 50-200mm f/4-5.6 DA AL
  • Pentax-A 70-210mm f4
  • Quantaray (Sigma or Tamron) LDO Macro 70-300mm f/4-5.6

I shoot mostly stuff around the house, street scenes, and some local wildlife.

Given the overlap in range of lenses, I was leaning towards the following:

  • Pentax-DA 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL II - Sell this.
  • Pentax-DA 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3 ED AL [IF] - Keep. General walk around lens.
  • Tamron SP AF 24-135mm f/3.5-5.6 AD Aspherical [IF] [Sell]
  • Pentax-F 50mm f/1.7 [Keeper. Low end portrait.]
  • Pentax 50-200mm f/4-5.6 DA AL [Sell]
  • Pentax-A 70-210mm f4 [Keep. Good combo with the K-01.]
  • Quantaray (Sigma or Tamron) LDO Macro 70-300mm f/4-5.6 [Sell]

Any opinions, most welcome.

Thanks,

Jawa
