Re: seeking some advice regarding a purchase

You put into words exactly my thoughts over the last few days.

I decided on the 18-135 wr for (mostly) for these reasons:

  • I want a lens with lots of zoom to see what focal lengths I need

  • I will have a very versitile weather sealed camera for days when it may rain

  • gives me a good walk around zoom so I don't have to change lens with the family

I will kinda re-evaluate after some time with it. I prob will never pay the extra for a f2.8 zoom. If I want to try a sharper/faster lens, I will try a prime cause it is more affordable for the IQ (I think).

I will prob get the sigma/tamron 70-300 down the road. When and if I have a need, but will be awhile.

I haven't ordered yet, but am close. I just drag my feet a bit when I purchase stuff over $1000 and kinda want to see the dpr review of the k-30. Not like they would have any motivation to get that review done anytime soon!

May get an old mahal focus prime for under 70 when I order the camera too. Maybe.
