Need advice on lense, and how did i do..

I have ordered my 1st marco lense...
smc P-D FA 100mm Macro F2.8

I also ordered my 1st limited lense...
smc P-FA 77mm F1.8 - Black

I am also looking for a weather resistant lense that will take pictures of beautiflu senery, but will capure amasing results of wildlife... I narrowed down selection to these 2...

smc DA 16-50mm F2.8 ED/AL (IF) SDM
smc DA 50-135mm F2.8 ED (IF)SDM

I am also looking for some really nice wide angle lenses brand must be pentax only...

It will be a bit difficult to capture wildlife with a 16-50, or even a 50-135.

That's exactly what I thought. Well I ain't any wildlife photographer but 135 is quite short. I'd certainly look into something 250 and above...

135mm is a bit short for wildlife, but unfortunately, the DA* 16-50mm and DA* 50-135mm lenses are the only Pentax weather sealed lenses available right now.

If you really need some weather sealed lenses though, the current Pentax lens roadmap does show some longer DA* glass, and I'm hopeful there'll be more surprises in store for us later this month.
