Hello from ATX


I've always been interested in photography but only decided to buy a dslr only a few months ago. I bought the navy k-x and so far I've bought the 40mm pancake. Looking for a nice standard zoom lens and maybe a few more primes. If you have any suggestions that would be great. I'm looking at the tamron 18-250 right now or maybe the sigma 17-70 to replace the kit. I know they're pretty different but those seem to be the next best step for me.

I'm using a Tamron 17-50 at the moment and enjoying what it can do. The 17-70 is probably a good option also if you don't mind sacrificing some speed.

Don't forget to check out the extensive lens review database we have here on the forum.

Enjoy your K-x and welcome in.
