I only have two lenses that do all my dirty work for me

DA* 50-135
DA WR 18-55

I'm looking to make my third lens a wide angle 10-24 or 12-24

K-x's better high ISO has let me almost exclusively use:

Tamron 28-75:2.8
Pentax F 50:1.7
Pentax DA 55-300

I add Raynox DCR 150 in case close-ups are needed.

I recently left for an extended trip in a camper. The above, tripod, flash, & focusing rail are all the dslr stuff I brought. Also fuji f70exr & fuji f20 (IR converted).

1. DA*16-50
2. A35-105
3. A100/2.8

My every day bag holds the cam w/lens mounted and 2-3 other lenses.
The 16-50 lives on my camera unless I mount something else for a specific reason. The 35-105 has replaced the 50-135 recently because I love the color rendition and it's slightly smaller. The 3rd lens changes often deliberately or by necessity. Today it was the A50/1.4, before the A100 it was the A35/2. Then I got the A24/2.8 and carried it for awhile and recently got the A135/2.8 and carried it for a week or so. Sometimes I stack 2 small primes in the 3rd slot, but the bag gets cramped and heavy.
If I had to pick just 3, it would be 16-50, 50-135 & 50/1.4.

1. K85
2. K35 (or the K30)
3. lately the K400

These lenses are what I use the most, but the FA77, K30 and a few longer lenses would be close behind. The FA77 might be more used but the 85 is easier to manual focus and for me it is much faster than auto focus, regardless of the brand of camera.
