Those are nice shots egordon99...

That looks like a nice lens. I am wanting this lens bad... Almost got a used one, but the deal fell thru. So I may need to buy a new one. Do you have any indoor/lowlight shots with it? I have kids and want to know if the 2.8 is really usable indoors.

I would love to see some if you have any.

how would this one be? (I think I asked about it yesterday)

Sigma 18-125mm f/3.5-5.6 DC Aspherical for Pentax - it is $260. I almost got this for my K100D but then realised I never take pictures at 18mm so it was not necessary for me to get this wide a range.

But it would replace the kit lens and then some, right?

I have heard real good things about the new Tamron 28-75mm 2.8 zoom. Constant 2.8 through the complete zoom range. You can get your hands on one for about $379.00. Suppose to be one of the hotest new lenses.
I think this lens would work best for the OP. And there's a $10 rebate right now, so it can be had for $369!

That lens has more zoom than the kit lens, but you could also get a Tamron 18-200, or 18-250 if range was your goal.

What are you're shooting?
What do you intend on using the lens for?
What's your budget?
