indoor shots with 18-55mm or 50-200mm

How do these 2 lens perform indoors, say for sporting events? I was wodnering if anybody had examples of indoor shots with these two lenses? I'll be getting the 18-55 wit the kit, but for more zoom, I'm trying to decide between the 50-200mm vs sigma 18-125mm vs sigma 18-200mm.

Also if you have indoor shots with the 18-125/200mm please post.

I have a 50mm 1.7 on the way, thinking about getting a 135mm 2.8 or 3.5 for indoor sporting events.

Thanks J.

Hi Flaco, you could do a quick search in photo gallery in here. plenty of 50-200mm shots there.

In Pentax digital SLR section, plenty of posts of images of 18-55mm

I am more pro-prime these days. I would go for what you have 50mm f1.7 and 135mm f2.8

It was not long ago that I saw 135mm f1.8 on ebay and the item is in germany. I did not have the cash at the time

Happy LBA

Thanks Roentarre.

Another thing I'm trying to debate is if i should just get the body since I have 50mm 1.7 on the way. And skip the kit lens and get a good walk around lens like a 18-125mm, 18-200mm, or even 28-300? If I don't get the kit lens, I want something that would give me good shots like the kit lens from 50mm and lower, but also give me that little extra zoom that the kit lens can't. But when I played with the camera, I was very impressed with the kits lens. Decisions, Decisons.... :ugh:
