Hello everyone!

I saw the "win a 31mm limited" challenge and thought I'd join to get a shot at winning. I just bought a K-50 DSLR a couple months ago, after having used a Pentax KX film camera casually for several years after taking a photography class in high school. Without worrying about film costs, I've definitely been using it more.

What do you guys suggest for lenses? I have two Pentax-A 50mm f/2 and 28mm f/2.8 manual focus lenses and the 18-55mm WR lens that came with the camera. The 18-55mm is convenient but has bad performance in low light, and without a focusing aid the manual focus lenses are difficult to use well.
