Re: seeking some advice regarding a purchase

Thank you. I meant to ask about the m lenses, not the a.

Well. I ordered the stupid thing. I got stage fright at the last minute about the 18-135 WR lens. I was just very tight budget wise and couldnt spend the 500 on it. Some of the internet reviews scared me out of it also.

I got the K-30, a used Tamron 18-200, a used Pentax m 28mm f/2.8, and a used Pentax m 50mm f1.7. Got it all for just over $900. So the wife was only mad enough to smack me around for about 3 hours today.

I realize that the Tamron is probably less of a lens quality wise than the 18-135 wr. But I will get to see more focal length and see what I like to shoot. I hopefully can get a feel for the difference in IQ between a big zoom lens and some sharp primes.

Worse case scenario, I can resell any of it I dont use without too much of a loss and get something more suitable.

Cant wait to get it in my hands!
