Essential lenses (Just starting out purchasing glass)

Thanks everyone! There's a lot of great suggestions and such in these two pages.

I've used a few really old film lenses from my wife's K1000 as a starting point. Specifically a 50mm F2, 28mm F2.8 and 70-200mm F4.
I purchased the more current Pentax 50-200mm weather sealed lens since then. I'm finding I need something wider and faster for indoors shooting. Probably a more modern 28mm.

I've also been looking at the DA* 16-50mm F2.8. I know its more of a pro lens, but it sure nice to start with the good stuff. :)

Thanks! I'd like to think so too. :lol:

Oh, where can I get those cool graphics I see in peoples' signatures that say they're a proud owner of "..."?

Hello all,

I'm new here and new somewhat new to DSLR's in general.

I'd like folks to weigh in on what they think some essential lenses to own are for general purpose photography. I'm not sure what I want to specialize in yet.
This is assuming you can only own two or three.

Any thoughts?


Thanks!
Matt.

Hey everyone,

My name is Matt and I'm from Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

I have been using Pentax DSLRs for a year and a half now, ever since buying a K20D. Also in the family is a Pentax K10D and K1000. I am also a student at NYIP.

I've read a lot of lens reviews from this site and find the site very informative and friendly in general. I recently bit the bullet and registered here.

I hope to chat with you sometime in the future about all things cool (Pentax). :D

Matt.
