Enjoy - and compared to the Canon user I spotted yesterday at the central station in Copenhagen (Denmark), then you have a very compact kit for travelling wow - that was a HUGH kit to carry around, make you appreciate the Pentax lens and camera sizes

The DA* 16-50 is a big and heavy lens! It's my 2nd heaviest lens. However if you need 16mm at f/2.8, size and weight are the price you pay. It's really not a bad lens. It renders beautifully, and sometimes you can use how prone it is to flare to take some artistic shots. However, I can pretty much guarantee you - if the sun is in the shot, this lens WILL flare. I especially like this lens indoors. I've used mine at bath time for my baby and while swimming. In both cases, my little guy makes sure the lens gets soaked. I've also used it in a dust storm with no issue! The WR of this lens works, and is well worth the cost for me. If you have a need for this lens, I would recommend it. Is it my favorite or most used lens - no, but it does have its place in my bag.
