Hi every one, new member

I have a pentax k500 with a sigma 18-200 lens and i just upgraded to k5 it came with 18-55 and 50-200 i was wondering if you gentlemans could help me on what lens(es) should i keep with my new k5 :
-sigma 18-200
-DA 18-55 & DA 50-200
I've heard that the DAs are better in IQ but the sigma is very practical :/ so can u please help me out
Thank you very much

The oens that came with the K-5 kit will be weather resistant, which is another point in their favor.
Only the 18-55 is WS

Welcome to the forum!

How about keeping the 18-200 for its versatility, and the 18-55 for being WR? Besides, there is only one person who can know which is the best lens for you, and that's you There is no reason to use the two lens kit if the Sigma gives you the picture you want.

Was this a grey market or used kit? The original 2 lens K-5 kits came with WR on both lenses.
Yes it's a used kit and the 50-200 have a silver line instead of the green so i assumed it's not WR
