Hi

New here just saying "hi" from Rhode Island. I have a K-30 with the kit lens, hopefully adding more soon

Welcome!

And I would suggest the DA 35/2.4 as your first lens addition. It makes a great first prime, it blows the kit lens away, and it's cheap.

Welcome! Keep a log on what focal length you use most often on your kit lens. After a month or two, you'll see some trends, and those trends can be very helpful in pointing you towards a lens that you will be sure to use.

Welcome! And I second bsamcash's suggestion.

Also - If you like manual focus lenses, there's so much to choose from!

Welcome to the forum, that's sounding like early stage LBA, you've been warned.

Welcome to the forums, this sure is a dangerous good place to do lens research. So have fun.

I think your warning is too late already. Did you notice how the opening post was lacking specific information about adding how many more? Such vagueness is a sure sign.
