Yep totally agree with the whole quote 👍 my only suggestion is skip the 55-200 and get the 55-300 WR had mine for a month and wish I had of skipped the first for the second. Zoom addict here though nothing wrong with the first have had some awesome shots with it.
I have yet to purchase my secondary lens, so I'll keep this in mine! haha i'm a bit of a zoom addict myself.

Very important

If you get old but perfect Pentax MF-lens, you can use them almost as AF-lens

I just want to tell you about simple trick by using MF lens on Pentax,
if you want to take photos wery fast .. almost so fast as with AF.

- put MF lenses on camera
- switch on AF (!!!)
- keep the trigger down
- turn focus ring to get the right sharpness
- camera will not take photo until centre is sharp
- when you get the best sharpness, camera automaticcaly takes a photo

With a little practice you can shoot almost fast as with AF by AF-lenses ...
WOW! Thanks for that cool tip!
