I know that you'll love the 50 - 135, and good luck with the 16 - 50

Great lenses. I have both. Wish I could use my 50-135 more often. I rarely shoot long.

id like to own the 50-135, but I cant justify it since my K110D is neither weather sealed or SDM capable. what a lens though. and yes good luck with the 16-50.

I too caved in and bought the 16-50mm last week... didn't let the fact that I might be laid-off from my job soon stop me, either :P But seriously, it's a great lens if you get a good copy. Mine seems fine so far and I think it will soon become my favorite lens.

I'm right there with you but in a slightly different way...I just received my DA 12-24. Was considering picking up one of those DA* lenses.

This lens has not come off my camera, I just love it
