Hi CSers, I am thinking of getting my first DSLR. I've actually got my sights on Pentax K-R Dual Kit (18-55, 50-200) (Seems good value for money to me @ $1060). But was advised to get other brands like Canon, Nikon, Sony as these other brands have better variety of lens.
Thou I read the following paragraph from the sticky: "FAQ: What DSLR camera to buy?"
"Buy Brand X or Brand Y, they have the most lenses!" Well yes, sure, they may have 500+ lenses to choose from. But realistically, you will most likely only ever use 2-5 lenses, and all brands cover this range. So what if Toyota makes 200 different models of cars when you want to buy an Audi, right?
But does the variety of lens really matter that much?
