50mm lens
Posted By: TimR, 09-14-2014, 09:05 AM

I bought my first DSLR in March - a Red Pentax K-50 with the 18-135 WR lens
and the 35mm F2.4 to go with it. It is an excellent beginning DSLR. I donít
need to mention here its great features. But also another deciding factor
in choosing the K-50 was Pentaxforums. It was the combination of a wealth
of information and a friendly forum community. The 18-135 WR is a useful lens
and I enjoy that I can go out into the rain with it among other things. Admittedly I am still
getting used to the 35mm F2.4. I believe the 50mm F1.8 would compliment it very nicely.
With having some extra reach and helping me learn using primes instead of a zoom. In
the interest of disclosure, I have bought a Takumar F 70-210 from a fellow pentaxforum member.
As of writing this I will receive it in a few days. The 50mm f1.8 would help round out my kit and
would be a great help in learning to take pictures with a prime lens. Below is a photo I took with
my K-50 and the 18-135 WR lens of one of my great nephews at my nieceís graduation party back in May.
If I am fortunate to win this lens it will find a permanent and good home.
