Hello everyone,

I just joined today after lurking for a couple weeks. I bought myself a K30 body and am on a hunt to find a good lens for the camera. Any suggestions, let me know!

I've never owned a DSLR before, so the K30 will be my first venture into the world of DSLR. Any help is truly appreciated!

Hello and welcome to the Forums. Knowing what you like to shoot and your experience level will help in recommendations as will a budget amount. I personally am saving for an 18-135 WR lens. There is some good reading in the lens database here.

Welcome to the forum, I guess a lot depends on what your taking photographs of, check out the lens review section of this forum which has lots of detailed stuff in it.
