    Heh.

    You would think everyone would want to do that.

    I wonder why I have so much faith (in Pentax).

    haha.

    Not so much faith in Pentax, but in FW's opinion rather, for me. Hahaha!

    I have just placed a pre-order for a K-7 body (called them up at the office, email too slow!).

    Now I have a problem - I have *never* used a Pentax before! My past cameras were Nikon, Canon, Fujifilm, Casio, and even Kodak, but never Pentax. I bought the K-7 as I'm into HDR and this seemed like a dream camera for HDRI!

    However, that means I have 2 (happy) problems:

    1. No lens to go with the body!
    2. No past experience on the quirks of Pentax cameras (every camera have quirks, including my Canon and Nikon).

    Based on the thread by fengwei, it seems like 18-55mm and 80-200mm perform quite well with the K-7.

    Any other recommendations? Is there a 'trinity' set for Pentax?

    Thanks!

    get a non WR kit lens, pretty good, a cheap 50mm f1.4 and u r set...
    for HDRI probably need a wide, sigma 10-20 which is hard to find or DA 12-24 which is better than the tokina version...

    only quirks is the green button, 1 button to rule them all
    if u like the ergonomics of nikon system, then pentax is easy meat in ur hands...

    the 80-200 is antique liao loh, so u have to pay antique price for it if u can find one... the 50-135 is a good alternative...or the DA200 or DA300... if u like retro... the FA* 200mm and F*300 is better

    trinity ?...nikon got 3 trinity zoom... pentax in my books got 8 trinity primes , finding them is another thing, only the 3 limiteds are in production, which makes them the least limited of all ....

    Thanks flowerpot!

    I have written down your recommendations in my list of Pentax lenses.

    Based on my current set of Canon and Nikon lenses, I was initially looking at the 16-50mm F2.8 DA* and 50-135mm F2.8 DA*. I checked in the B&S and it seems that these lenses are not very popular here? However, I do see a lot (relatively) of activity for 18-250mm F3.5-6.3 DA lens (any reason?)!

    Your recommendation for 12-24mm F4 is appreciated, as that would be in the range for my landscape work. I was thinking of using the Tokina 11-16mm as my experience with that lens for my Canon system is very good... any views?

    Cheers!

    16-50 and 50-135 is popular, thats why seldom on sale
    unfortunately there is no tokina 11-16 version for pentax, in fact hardly any tokina version as there is a join development on many of the lenses... except for some old tokina lenses...
    best bet is the sigma 10-20 or the DA12-24...

    You might want to wait for the Tamron 10-24mm. But considering past releases, who knows when it will actually arrive here...
