Lens for Pentax Super Program

I recently acquired a Super Program from my Mom. It already had a Pentax 50mm lens with it and my mom purchased a Sigma 300 mm zoom lens.

I want to get some more lens but I didn't know if anyone had a recommendation for a lens that would work with it, or if there are even any that might work.

Thank you in advance.

To get the most out of it, the A lenses are recommended. A lenses can be set to the A position and the camera can then select aperture based on the shutter speed. However any k-mount lens will work with some minor limitations.

Super program can use the original Pentax K and M lenses (manual exposure and Av exposure automation), the A, F and FA lenses (all exposure modes).

There is thus a lot to chose from on the second hand market.

I'd recomment the smc Pentax-A 35-105mm zoom. It is a great lens, excellent image quality, and it covers a most useful zoom range. KEH.COM has it from time to time.

The SMC PENTAX-A 70-210/4 is another winner with this camera, SF.
