[ACQUIRED] Starter lens for a K10D

Hey!

I've got my K10D on the way and I'm looking for a starter lens to play with-- while I've got a load of manual lenses, I think it might be a good idea to keep a basic (Pentax DA 50-200mm, 18-250mm maybe?) automatic lens on hand.

I'm checking with you guys because I'm a student and just about had a heart attack looking at the prices for the hunks of glass at my local Henry's, ergo the cheaper the better!


Show me what you got!


Thanks!!


*edit* Found an 18-55mm

Looking for a short lens (18~55 maybe?) in Toronto-- it looks like shipping up from the 'states kills a good deal

Shipping will only be $10 USD from me for the 18-55mm lens if you pay with an International Money Order.

Pentax 50-200 LNIB

I bought this on the Forum from Cambridge for $100. Since then, I've decided that I really want something longer. You can have it for $100 plus actual shipping.

This lens can hardly be told from new. I mounted it on my K10D and *ist-DS bodies and took a few test shots, then put it back in its original box.
