Coming to Pentax from Nikon
8 months ago

Hello all,

Experienced Nikon DX format user who sold everything 4 months ago to try mirror less. Well, I'm going back to DSLR and staying there now.

K-5IIs body is now $130.00 less than Nikon D5300 body. K-5IIs looks really good, as good or better than D5300 (which would be a fine camera for me).

Question - here's what I like on the Nikon DX bodies. Please suggest equivalent lens for the Pentax regardless of cost. I'm practical and I know that what I like to shoot is well covered by these two lenses:

1. Nikon 35 1.8 DX (in other words, normal focal length, large aperture with great IQ)

2. Nikon 18-55 VRII (doesn't have to be exact same zoom range but something in the neighborhood)

Looks like good Pentax lenses will cost more than the Nikon, but I only need these two and I'm good for a long while.

Thanks for your help!
