lenses for K200d

Hey everyone,
My profile is technically misleading, since I do not actually have any of the equipment I have listed. That being said, I am simply waiting on the money from my reenlistment in the Missouri National Guard to purchase it. These are the items that I am considering for purchase to start out.

I would like to have everyone's opinion on whether or not I should take the plunge and buy the DA*16-50mm and the DA*50-135mm. I tried out the DA*50-135mm in the store and it was outstanding but the 18-250mm that I am considering was out of stock.

Inserting standard response:

What kind of photography do you plan to do? Family photos, sports, indoor, outdoor, macro, etc?

Congrats on your purchase, and thank you for serving.

Also consider joining our St. Louis users group (in my sig). SPG is pretty close after all.

Thanks for quick response

I'd be glad to join the group and you're welcome.

I am planning on doing mostly wildlife photography. I also have a son who is almost a year old that I will be taking a lot of pictures of. I am planning on getting the FA 50mm/f1.4 for those shots though. I am mostly looking for zooms to use with my outdoor shots.
