Hello from Sydney

I've had my K10 for a few years and LX for many years, looking forward to renewing my interest in photography with a trip to northern Europe in June.

Freshwater, Sydney

Welcome in Lachlan. What lenses will accompany you to Europe?

Just back to this site after a bit of a break.
Anyway went with a prime kit: 15,21,31,43,77 and no regrets. Now considering 1.7 adaptor and 100wr for more reach.

That's a nice set of glass you took to Europe. Which Limited was your favourite?

I live in Sydney also.

Cool, a few more Sydney-siders checking in here.
Good to have you Lachlan, and a fine kit of gems you have to choose from.
You want reach, you may do well with a fast telezoom - just don't know if that'd cramp your style or make your kit too big...
But if speed ain't too big a deal, then the DA 55-300 can do some magic for a small size...
Enjoy choosing.

Favourite: its really hard to say. The 31 has always been my favourite of the three amigos, by far, but I learned quite a lot about the 43 and 77 on this trip and appreciate them more and more. The 15 and 21 were new; I loved the 15 and hardly used the 21. Which is a bummer because it is my favourite FOV; but I could rarely get it to shine.
RE: length I keep looking for an FA*200/4 Macro, then look at my bank balance, then forget about it...
