Hi, All!
Pentax K2000 arrived with DAL 18-55 and 50-200 lenses. Then there was this blackout with noises and flashes of light and there arrived a Sigma 18-200A/F. Wanted this Sigma to use on foreign travel for architecture, etc. More darkness with noise and flashes and Pentax-M 50mm 1.7 M/F, Cosmicar 28mm 2.8 M/F, Takumar 135mm 2.5M/F, Sigma-Z 300mm5.6 M/F jumped out of a van into my car. I had to keep them. Happy, happy LBA.
So do I need to keep the kit lenses or does the Sigma 18-200 represent realm adequately?

Welcome! Normally when I hear noises and see flashes I'm getting pulled over by the police, it'd be nice to get some lenses instead of a $200 ticket.

I had the Tamron 18-200 and find the kit 18-55 to have a tad bit better IQ. THe 18-200 obviously has the convenience factor so I still kept my kit lens for the times I didn't need the convenience. Enjoy!
