Lens for k 50

Hi, Can I put the tamaron 70-200 on my K 50. I currently have the DA 18-135, DA 55-300, 50mm 1.8 and sigma 17-70 2.8. Sometimes I feel like I dont get those real sharp crisp images with all my pictures. Should I be able to get them all the time with the lens collection that I have, is it that I am not always use the correct settings. Or do I need a better lense ? Or do I need to upgrade my camera body?


Thanks
Kim

Yes you can use the Tamron 70-200mm, and it's a great choice, but you'd have to make sure that you get the Pentax version.

If you're having trouble with your photos, why not post some samples and we'll take a look? Could be a combination of settings, shooting conditions, technique, and perhaps gear.

as long as it's a K-mount, you can put any lens on your K50...


perhaps if you posted some examples of your shots with EXIF data, we could make better suggestions...
