Thanks for your response again, I'm enjoying this discussion and learning a lot. I'm trading in my kit lens and getting an 18-135. I think based on price, IQ, zoom it will be good on my holiday in Europe last week with the new KP. I'll keep you updated!

Hey again all. Thank you for the great numbers of replies especially nocturnal and BruceBanner. I am always struck the high degree of expert advice in the forum. I especially take on board the number of themese:

The 20-40 lt is not a lens for holiday snaps!
Shooting JPEG is not ideal- ie shooting raw give more level of control
Getting a limited lens is no substitute for technique
AF difficulties may be surmount with understanding the camera setting and practice

I also got the impression Pentax is primarily a landscape shooters brand and sports/action might come second and if the was man mode of shooting other brands might be better. I had known this but was trying to find out the best body/lens combo for the family man who also likes landscape...

I am so happy with the kit, the support from this forum is unparalleled so I am keen to stay with Pentax and choose the right lenses to get the best performance in what I am shooting...which is holiday snaps in the short term but family photographs in the medium to long term, with an emphasis on really stunning photographs to be cherished and along the way develop my photography skills-- otherwise it I would just use my phone!
