Re: seeking some advice regarding a purchase

When i started into DSLRs I got the K100d + 18-55 + 55-200. I think you're getting a better lens with the 18-135, which I now use on the K5.

But I also passed a local photo hobby store and felt the urge to enter and ask about "old Pentax glass" so I got out with an old Pentax SMC-A 50mm F1.7 that I had read about as being very good, for 60$ or so.

you can find a lot of them on ebay for about the same money and they're great portrait lenses in and out of the house. Also good for some other stuff that fits in the 50mm span

So you may go that route just accept that you'll have to focus manually. BTW, you'll have to do the same for the Samyang lenses.
