The 16-50 really is a wonderful lens. You wouldn't go wrong buying it. The 16 on the wide end seems to be just wide enough to give you a really dramatic wide angle effect - 17 and 18 just aren't quite there in the same way. 50/2.8 also works for portraits. If you want a do-it-all lens, you won't find anything better.

I would go with the 16-50. Quiet is awfully nice for wedding ceremonies and with the 50-135 and 16-50 you have it covered. You will need a flash or two as well. Primes are a beautiful thing, but it is awfully nice to have the flexibility of a zoom at your finger tips. I think that once you get accustomed to shooting weddings and know what you will need and when, it would be easier to use primes, but for me, the 16-50 and 50-135 cover 95 percent of what I use.

Fun "other" lenses that I also use are the 10-17 fish eye and DA 70...

Agree with this


cheers

Thanks for all the help so far everyone. Right now I'm leaning towards the DA* 16-50, just looking for the best price.

Don't forget to check WalMart.com.

They don't sell it in the stores, but they have the Pentax cameras and some lenses online, including 3rd party lenses for Pentax like Sigma.
