Hi,

I've had my K10D for about 7 months now and have started to get results I am very happy with.
A couple of months back I bought a Sigma 10-20mm which I Love (my main interests are architectural and landscape shots) and it has not been off my camera since.
I intend to buy the new Pentax 55-300 in the next couple of weeks as a zoom as I want to try my hand at some wildlife shots and this lens has been getting great reviews.
Next on the list will be something to cover the middle ground, like the Kit Lens (18-55).
I was wondering if you guy's could recommend a few lenses I should be thinking about in this range...I would hopefully want something that was a definite step up from the Kit Lens and Ideally it would be below £300 ($600).

Thanks
Mark Morb

Hi, if I remember well at the price you mention you can get the Pentax 16-50 DA*, I think Beachcamera has it for little more then 600$.

Alternatives are the Tamron 17-50 2.8, or, since you have already the 10-20, the Tamron 28-75 2.8, even cheaper. From Sigma the 17-70 is good.

Or you may wait for the new Pentax 17-70.

If you choose the sigma 17-70 or the pentax 16-50 be careful to not get a faulty one, there a lot of them. Just try it carefully in the store, or after delivery, and send it back if it's not good.
