K1000 Lens Suggestions?

Can anyone recommend me some good lenses for the K mount on a K1000?

Check out the Lens Review section of this forum. Any of the K or M series lenses would be appropriate choices; A or FA work too but you're paying for features your camera doens't support.

The standard easily available / inexpensive choices include the 28/2.8, 35/2, 40/2.8, 50/1.7, 85/2, 100/2.8, 135/3.5, and 200/4 from the M series.

Don't forget there is many aftermarket lenses also fairly inexpensive in our marketplace and on ebay. So you went with a full frame camera. Good show. I still love mine. And my old Vivitar 70-210. And now I've started using a lot of M42 lenses also.

Thanks for the suggestion guys, I don't really know of any lenses from the other companies... I think I like the 28/2.8 and a 35-70.... or maybe a 75-150 zoom if I can find these. I don't seem to be having great luck finding some in toronto... the stores sell them pretty over priced too...
