DEAL 1 )
Pentax K-3 Digital Limited Edition Silver SLR Camera Kit
Includes Pentax Grip, Extra Pentax Battery and Limited Edition Strap £1325

DEAL 2 ) Pentax K-3 Digital SLR Camera Body ONLY £900

DEAL 3 ) Pentax K-3 Digital SLR Black with DAL 18-55 WR Lens Kit £950

DEAL 4 ) Pentax K-3 Digital SLR Black with DAL 18-135 WR Lens Kit £1170

DEAL 5 ) Pentax K-3 Digital SLR Black with DAL 18-55 WR and DAL 50-200mm WR Lenses £1100

ALL the above also include the FREE Pentax 35mm F2.4 AL LENS

I don't know weather just to get the camera body then get a Lens that is a little bit better so IQ would be that bit better,
as a beginner with DSLR what do the experienced users advice.

Also I was thinking along the lines of Deal 4 which comes with the 18-135WR.

As a beginner I am lookin for a lense that could be an all purpose lens for the first few months till I save more monies.
BUT I also want good quality,

I like taking Portraits, landscapes, I could get the camera and have about £500/ to £600 for la half decent lens or am I dreaming in total I have £1500 to spend
all advise GREATLY appreciated.

I have a Fuji HS50 and used it for learning, more about aperture, shutter speeds, ISO.

watched hundreds of YouTube videos on camera settings etc. etc. now want to move on and the Pentax K3 for me is the best camera out there, for the price range and IQ.

+1 for Deal 1 for me, a Silver Limited Edition, free batt grip, extra batteries and as far as I remember is that it comes with a leather Pentax strap.

Since there will be a free DA 35mm f2.4, I'll be happy with that. Not really a fan of the 18-135WR but that's just my personal taste though

There is no such thing a "Pro" level gear, just Pro level work.
