Noob Pentaxian here

Hi guys,

I'm Meinard, currently been loving my K-30 which I bought last August. I'm still trying to learn a lot about photography and this camera. I do own a Tamron lens 18-200 f3.5 and a Pentax FA 50mm f1.4 besides the kit lens. I'm trying to venture within street photography as well as landscape. I've got two choices of lens in mind that might be a bit more bias to landscape which are the Pentax DA 15mm f4 or the Tamron 10-24mm f3.5

Help me choose guys if you have personal experience with these lenses. Thanks a bunch!

Welcome aboard!

Remember that all lenses can do landscapes. That said, I love my 15 Ltd. And I know more than one will point to the DA 12-24 as the ultimate wide angle lens. And yet others will suggest having a look at the Sigma 8-16.
