andre, whatever you get you are going to need to store all your equipment in a dry place. otherwise , with amount of humidity down there, eventually fungus will be a problem. you ought to get some silica gel packs or use a sock full of rice in your bag to cut down the dampness. i'm from new orleans and am familiar with the weather down there.

Since you are looking For lense thats Close to the human Eye. You Will need to look in the 28mm to 35mm Range. With the crop factor of the DS/DL, that would put you in the 40-50MM range. I cannot reccomend Any lense in particular, but i am looking at a Sigma 28MM-1.8

Andre,

You didn't say if you already have a camera, or if you already have one or more lenses. If you plan to buy a Pentax digital SLR, like the DS2 or DL, I recommend getting the "kit" lens (called that becomes it often comes together with the camera as a kit). The kit lens is an 18-55mm zoom, which goes from medium-wide angle, to "normal" (similar to human eye), to a little bit of telephoto. The kit lens is very affordable, gives good performance (not great, but good), and using it will help you decide what you like before you spend more money on other lenses. I have one, and I like it a lot.

I am also a fan of the kit lens, it isn't great but it is very good.
