Hello from the Seychelles!

Hello Pentax lover's...

I am new with the Pentax and I can certainly say that the K-5 is a very astonishing model. But what type of lenses are best for this little monster... I do mostly landscapes and nature photography. I already have a 50mm f/2.8 which is perfect for portrait. Just need to add a few soldier's on the front line. Any ideas from the pro's?

Welcome to the Forums!

I'm not a pro, but an amateur enthusiast!

For landscapes: DA 15mm, DA 21mm, DA 12-24, or DA* 16-50.

What do you mean by "nature photography?"

If wildlife, then may want DA*50-135, DA*60-250, or DA 55-300mm.
If plants/bugs, then maybe DA 35 limited macro, or DFA 100mm WR macro.


Good luck!

Thank you for your reply. Yes I did mean wildlife photography. My apologies... I shall take into account the following information you gave.
