Started having problems, my kx losing power and not wanting to restart. Tried several of the tips like removing sd card and replacing batteries. Now the camera will not even power up. Looking for other tips or do I need to send it in for repairs.

Need help in making a decision on which lens to buy. I have the Tamron 70-200 2.8, but looking to add a second 2.8 lens in the 17-50 range. I photograph alot of indoor sports, sometimes need to have a lens lower than the 70MM on the tamron. Any ideas or suggestion please??

Here is the problem, I'm trying to pick a lens to use shooting indoor sports and low light/night sports. Here is the list of lenses I'm looking to put with my new K-X camera. Please advise to which one or make suggestions.
1. Pentax SMC DA* Series 50-135mm f/2.8 ED IF SDM Telephoto Zoom Lens
2. Tamron AF 70-200mm f/2.8 Di LD IF Macro Lens
3. Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 DG HSM II Macro Zoom Lens

P.S. I'm always able to get pretty close to the subjects, and this lens will also be used to shoot outdoors.

Thanks for the quick reply's, best buy is offering the refurb K10D for $369.00. Thought I might use the money saving on getting the 70-200mm 2.8. But sounds like everyone is enjoying the K-X. Decisions are always hard to make...

Thanks for the info, the distance shooting the youth sports is actually from a distance of the running track around the field.

I appreciate all the info recieved here.

I need some input on which lens would be best to buy on a limited budget. I would like to start by saying I own K100D. I have recently bought the PENTAX-FAJ 75-300MM. This seems to work OK but need more distance like 400mm or above. I have to shoot pictures of youth sporting events from the stands. I was wondering if any of the older series would work. I don't mind having to do manual.

Please give advice, price range, where to find used equipment.

Thanks

THanks for the reply, this was the first time to post a pic. Just recently started to use this forum.

The shot was handheld and might try using a tripod next time when shooting.
