I use the kit lens about 95% of the time. Starting on Christmas day, I will get upgraded to the DA 16-45mm. (Yes, Iknow what I'm getting for Christmas.) The kit lens has served me well, but it's time to get better glass. I am also looking forward to the wider 16mm.

There are 382 images in the Pentax Photo Gallery taken with that lens compared to the 302 taken by the 16-45mm. It's pretty good.

Here is one of my favorites that I shot with sed lens.

Until now, it was permanently attached to my K100D, with X-mas and nice present coming, I may use it bit less in the future but still, it's great lens for what it is...
