Greeting from Michigan

I've been lurking around for awhile and figured it was time to register! As I have been out of the realm of DSLR/medium format for a long time, I was pleasantly surprised at what Pentax has done and the quality of their cameras......amazing really.

I don't have a Pentax camera.......I'm in the process of starting to sell off most of my Mu 4/3 Olympus system and am trying to decide my next move. I have been looking hard at a K-30, but find the lens options confusing. I really don't want the 18-55 WS unless I have to, the 18-135WS is an option, but not if I have received the 18-55 as part of a kit.

I would also like a 50mm equiv fast prime. A 2.8 28-80 equiv zoom is also an option. I have look at the Pentax website and the reviews here......but I'm still confused.

I primarily like something for general walking around, maybe some informal portraits, some landscape, I have a Fuji X100 as well. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much,
