Pentax on a budget

I agree. Though I think the other folks are right that the kit lens combo is perfectly fine for the K-x. The 18-250 is a good choice as well. I mentioned the 18-135 because it's widely available and optically a good fit. But the DA 17-70 is a good choice too if you don't want to go the kit lens route.

That's a nice combo as well.

I guess you could put it under the latter. It's a constructive discussion about what's the nicest DSLR/lens combo you could put together under a limited budget.

It has been my observation that while the 18-135 is just okay on the K-5... it actually is an excellent performer when attached to the K-x or K-r. You're right, WR is beside the point on the K-x or K-r, but in all other respects I think it's a nice, versatile step up lens from the kit zooms.

If someone came to you and said they were interested in the Pentax system but only had $1,000 to spend on both camera and lenses. What would you advise them to get?

My advice would be:

Pentax K-x/K-r body
DA WR 18-135 lens
DA 35mm AL lens
