Hello from Croatia

Greetings to all you pentaxians from Croatia.

I've recieved today my first ever DSLR - Pentax K-S2 with 2 WR kit lenses.
If I will have any questions (soon) this will be my maine place to ask questions. Before I've decided to buy K-S2 i've read this forum non-stop and know you're all full of great advices
I know my 55-200 kit lens is not so good, and will try to change for something better in short period. What will be your sugestions?

And now, let the journey with pentax begins

Welcome ! The K-S2 is an awesome camera, fully rained proofed for those snowy, rainy and frosty Zagreb dan!

I'm sorry, but I don't know what is better than the 55-200 and affordable if you were on a budget. Are you on a budget ?

I have the DA* 50-135mm 2.8 and DA* 200mm 2.8, and this is better than the kit lenses. I would recommend the DA* 50-135mm or DA* 60-250mm f/4, or Tamrom 70-200mm 2.8 di. If you shop around and keep it under the equivalent of $1000 USD I think you could find something like these three lenses and you won't have to pay import tax. DA* is fully rain proofed.

I recommend these lenses because they are at a professional quality and produce a lovely ambiance in images, and have greater sharpness than in a kit lens.

Good luck with your new camera !

Thank you all for welcome words and suggestions about lenses
I was thinking between K-S2 and Nikon D5500, but in the end after reading all kind of sources ended with pentax and for now I think I made a right choice.
I would like something faster then my 55-200 kit lens but still WR because like to shoot sports and all kind of fast things.

Soon I'll post my first impresions and few pictures of my cats that you could criticise me

Welcome from Chicago!

Use your 50-200 for a while, stop it down to f8 or so. Oh, and make sure you use lens hoods. They're important.

The 55-300 is better quality, but you'll need to figure out whether you want something different.
