Re: Lens suggestions for Pentax K-5II

It's hard to recommend a lens if we are not sure what kind of photography you are attracted to and what your budget is,  regardless, here are some ideas.

if you are not sure what focal length you need,  I reccomend the 18-135 mainly because it has a fairly large range, and you can get a feel for what kind of focal length you like and it is relatively cheap.

when you have figured what focal length you use the most, get one of the three fa ltd's 31, 43 or 77.  That way, you have a general kit lens that can do most everything, and then you have your ARTSY lens which you can get creative with and take some stellar photos with.

It would be a shame to spend money on a nice lens that isn't the right focal length.

Just my .2
