I was gonna get a K5 II and a Sigma 10-20mm F4.5-6 EX DC for just under £1000 but with the new K3 out soon im thinking of waiting and have it as a more long term 8-10 years investment....hopefully! whats a good cheap lens for landscape photography? I really liking the spec of the K3 and whilst im not as good and most of you guys im doing ok. Ill eventually use it for F1 with a Sigma 500mm lens so think long term better off compromising on the lens to start with

did you consider K-30, I actually use it much more than my K5 ( do not have K-5II) and yes, seriously looking into K-3

yes old Sigma non HSM 10-20 very good , use it & love it

Sigma 17-70 2.8-4.5 MACRO great lens, non HSM , love it, my main workhorse , plenty of them around used, under AU$200

Sigma 17-70 2.8-4 MACRO 'C' HSM new model, absolute marvel!, it will be my new workhorse,

considering now Sigma 8-16, apparently great, never used one, ~AU$628
