Re: Pentax K-5 as 1st DSLR?

K-5 is in a different class of cameras, way above those 2 you mentioned.

K-5 is above Nikon D7000.

DA 18-55 WR is OK-ish resolution wise, but contrast is way to high to my taste.

DA 16-45 f 4 render nicer, and still very sharp.
DA 17-70 f 4 SDM is also OK, and AF is decent fast and silent.

Tamron 17- 50- f 2.8 price, is very tempting, but AF is slower.

DA 55-300 is the recommended affordable tele zoom, that render also nicer then DA 50-200
