A great used lens to consider would be the DA* 50-135. I picked one up a few years ago for pictures of my daughter, and other kids at HS band competitions.
I use it on a K-5, and have converted it to screw drive. The focal range isn't bad, sometimes I would like to be around 200mm, but copping with this lens' IQ isn't a big issue.

I also use it for Indoor winter percussion competitions, and f2.8 comes in handy with some of the bad lighting in HS gyms.

I like shots like this, and especially the explanation so I can give it a try.

I couldn't find a specific thread dedicated to lens and camera tricks. I'll just have to remember it:)

Welcome to the forum, from Auburn, Indiana!
Congratulations on you camera and lens combo.

The 100mm WR is a great lens. I've used it on the beach shooting birds, on the trails shooting bugs, and at HS band competitions.

Looks like I'm taking a class: Digital Nature Photography at the Purdue Fort Wayne campus. Starts in a couple weeks.

It is a beginner level class (know the camera basics and bring a dslr) , but I'm pretty excited. I might even set my clothes out the night before my first day:).

The book for the class is , Digital Nature Photography by John Shaw,.

If you do go with either the K series or M series, you'll want to read up on the use of green button, and catch in focus, if you're not already familiar. Great features on your camera.
