Hello from Northern Colorado

Hello from Northern Colorado!

I've been interested in the digital world for awhile... just have not made the jump. Shooting Canon FD mounts on an AE-1 Program for the past 12 years. Now I'm in the marked for a K20D- don't have the cash for a multi-lens line up right now, so I'm looking into the Sigma 17-70mm Macro 2.8-4.
Many different subject interests; however, two little kids will and up being in the frame most often.

Any suggestions for a single starting lens?

Hello and welcome...............................

I like the DA 18-55AL which is very cheap on Ebay
The if the budget allows try and add a ....
DA 55-200 also very cheap on secondary market

I think you are always better of buying quality...So if you don't like the reviews for the 2 above try a single other (17-70mm for instance)

Sigma are ok but Pentax is generally better..............................
But I'm biased......................
I must admit....
