New to DSLRs and to Pentax

Hello fellow Pentax users, I'm in need of some help in which lens to purchase, either the DA* 200 or DA* 300 as it will be my most often used lens on my
K-7? Any wisdom on this subject would be greatly appreciated.

I currently own a FA 31 Pentax lens and love it!

I read a review on both lens and the DA* 300 has a higher IQ than the DA* 200. If you want to just go to Google and type in each lens and ask for reviews there are a number a sites that will break it all down with all the details that you will ever want to make up your mind.

Why 200 or 300?

Well the 200mm is faster and the 300mm longer. Which is more important for your application? What do you want to photograph?

Welcome! You might be interested in the Lens discussion group forum and maybe check out the DA* club thread.
