Are you looking for a telephoto zoom? If so, that's probably the most cost-effective choice.

Take a look at our lens database: Pentax Reviews - Pentax Lens Reviews & Pentax Lens Database

Which lens(es) do you already have?
What are the subjects that you want to take photos of with the 'new' lens?

If you're indeed looking for telephoto and you don't want to break the bank, the DA55-300 is a very good choice for the money.
