Wish that darn 18-135 WR wasnt so expensive. If I choose to purchase that lens with camera, it will prob be the only lens I get initially.

But perhaps I could get the DA 35mm f/2.4 AL for xmas this year. Or many find one of those old lens on ebay that will fit on the K-30 to play around with!

I did just that a few days ago, and other than an old MF 50 1.7, the 18-135 is my only lens atm. I am searching online for a nice tele, not as critical as a good wide end zoom so far. The 18-135 is a great portrait lens, and it can be used for wide shots as well as some tele work. Ad to that it is weather sealed and its a good deal.

If I can't find a cheaper tele I will likely save for the 55-300 and call it good. Once I am at a point of body ugrade (no sooner than the K3 arrival) I will get some of the limiteds but that will be at least a year from now.
