Hello everyone!

Glad to find the forum. Have alot to learn. I have been planning to purchase some photo equipment for a while. Have gravitated to Pentax after much research and purchase of Pentax 8X42DCFSP, awesome! At present am considering Pentax 16-45, 55-300 and a 50 1.2 or 55 1.4 Looking forward to many other opinions.

Welcome aboard. If its opinions you seek, they're here in spades, some of them even justifiable!

You might consider the very versatile 18-135 instead of the 16-45, although the extra 2mm at the lower end may be important to you, too, and the 18-135 may be outside your budget. The 55-300 seems very well regarded here, and, if resources allow and you don't mind manual focus, the 50/1.2 can help you do some interesting things (I have the A version, which provides auto-aperture control on Pentax DSLRs).
