New K5 Owner

Hi, I recently bought a kit with a K5, a DA 18-55 WR and a DA 50-200 WR after having been without SLR camera for about 15 years. I got a few decent pictures during the first weeks, but soon realized that I will want to upgrade my kit, which takes me to why I have started reading this forum. I have found a lot of helpful tips and reviews here in pentaxforums and I realize I will want to have some Limited lenses.

If you don't mind manual focus, do take a look at the film-era lenses as well. Some of them can be had for cheap, but are superb optically.

For instance, I have the "K" 28 f/3.5 (not the f/2.8, which is inferior). That lens is amazing, it very nearly equaled my 21mm Limited. And it cost less than $100.

Even if you want/need autofocus, some of the F series and FA series lenses are nice too. A nice long zoom I've used is the SMC F 70-210 f/4-5.6.
