Hello from Ukraine

Hello everyone!
I started with Pentax system in 2009.
I am an owner of K-5/2s and Pentax DA*series 16-50 mm,and Pentax fix sms 1:2 55mm
l make a photos time to time.
The photo camera and fix are extremely reliable,but in contrast to Pentax DA*series 16-50 mm is enough problem,especially autofosus system with SDM engine.
I am Interested in landscapes scenes,wildlife,portraits and architecture.
If you share these interest,send me about it.

Welcome to the forum! The DA*16-50 is a fine lens but many have had problems with the SDM. There is a fix which changes it to screw dirve. A forum member will help you change it if you wish.

Welcome to the forum. As mentioned, and i tried and get gets great results with both DA*16-50mm and DA*50-135mm, consider a screw-drive conversion. If you'd like to try another wide zoom lens, the 16-85mm has to be tried. I love mine.
