What lens is best?

Hi guys.

Im planning on buying a new lens for my k20d was wondering what lens is the better one, i was thinking SMC Pentax-DA (18-55mm F3.5-5.6 AL WR) or SMC Pentax-DA (18-55mm F3.5-5.6 AL II). They seem the same sept for the water resistant bit. (Found bout of them cheapish on internet.)

Any one got any tips?

I recommand the DA 35mm f/2.8 Macro. It can be stuck on your camera.

Go for the WR since you got a K20D

I agree strongly: go for the WR lens to get a complete system (camera + lens) that is weather resistant (WR).
