Greetings

New to Pentax recently purchased a k5 along with a DA* 50-135 and a Tamron 17-50.Have had to watch my pennies since then so have been getting the odd old lens when they come up for sale on a NZ online auction. Got heaps to learn so look forward to reading the posts.
Cheers

Greetings!

Hello Waysouth, Welcome to the Forum!
Sounds like you have a great start, fast zooms in the useful focal range.
If you're looking for a less-bulky walk around kit, I (and several others here, it's practically a fan club) can recommend the F 35-70mm f/3.5-4.5 zoom. About $50.00 USD. A handy "Macro" or closeup function at the 70mm end, too. Small, fast A/F and fits in a pocket.
There's any number of M/F PK legacy lenses available, a few favorites are the M 100mm f/2.8, M or A 35mm f/2.8, M 135mm f/3.5 and 100mm f/4.0 macro.
Lots to choose!
Regards,
Ron
