Hello from Sydney

Hello everyone.

I have owned various pentax film and digital bodies and many lenses. I just bought a K-x to replace my ist*DL and i'm now in search of a sharp everyday lens.

Welcome from Melbourne.

Are you looking for a prime or a zoom?

Welcome to the forum Rob.

There are quite a few Sydney members here.
You wont be dissappointed with the K-x, my everyday lens is a Sigma 17-70 and find i get pretty good results in most circumstances.

Thanks guys.

At the moment i'm considering both

I use to own the pancake 40mm 2.8 - I found it to be a great perspective on film, however a bit too tight on cropped bodies. I have now made the shift to 100% digital shooting (i use to shoot 75% film and 25% digital)

At the moment I'm considering the 21mm 3.2 prime or the 16-50mm Pentax 2.8 zoom.

The 21mm is much more affordable and compact. However the zoom is more versatile and it seems to me like a very nice lens.
