    Narrowed down to Pentax DL - Need lens advice


    I think I'm going with the DL (not 100% sure will handle cameras tomorrow if best buy has them in stock).

    Here's what I am proposing, and I need to know if the lens' I am considering will work (I understand there is no aperture ring on lenses) and if they will work, are there any limitations with this lens combo?



    Pentax SMC-FA-J 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 AL - Wide Angle-Telephoto Auto Focus Zoom LensJ

    Pentax SMCP-FA-J 75-300mm f/4.5-5.8 AL - Telephoto Auto Focus Zoom Lens

    If you can afford it, get the 16-45 for wide and look for an old 45-125 if you can find one (they're rare, you need to comb the used market).

    An old 80-200 might help too. Save for the 77mm prime, it's the most incredible lens I've seen!

    But the lenses you chose will work very well with the new Pentax digitals.
