    Right now I have 1, 2, 5. I use 5 where I don't feel like carrying something too large around, but would actually really like to get a 43/1.9.

    If you get a K-7, DA lens is the way to go to fully utilitise the camera features.

    I'm guessing Des is referring to the distortion and CA correction features of the K-7. They should work for all DA lenses, but why stop at just DA when you can have DA* or DA Limited....

    43 1.9? For travel, actually the FA 31mm is extremely good for travel portraiture.

    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 ....

    FA*24mm f2
    FA31mm f1.8 Ltd
    FA43mm f1.9 Ltd
    FA77mm f1.8 Ltd
    FA*85f1.4
    A* 135mm f1.8
    FA*200mm f2.8
    F*300Ff4.5
    Bro, I think the FA*200mm f4 macro (the mythical lens) should be included?

    Reviews seems to suggest that it's not as good as the sigma 10-20 or DA/Tokina 12-24. but shd be priced well and possibly value for money.
