Re: your first Pentax SLR - My Favorite lenses

I'd second many of these suggestions, and add the DA70, which is an awesome lens in it's own right and a lot less expensive than the 77. The 77 is sharper in the center, but the 70 is no slouch and is sharper around the edges. Both have superb color and contrast.

If you like the occasional zoom you can't go wrong with the 16-45 f/4 and the 55-300 F4.-5.8. Both will surprise you with their versatility and IQ.

Welcome to a club of the company that still makes practical cameras, and a nice array of superb prime lenses.
