    Good evening everyone.

    I have shot a Penxtax K1000 for years, and recently purchased the K10D. I do enjoy it quite a bit. It came with a kit lens (18-55). I was not too impressed with the quality of the pictures on the kit lens, but was impressed when I used some of my manual lenses (list below) from the K1000.

    I would like to purchase a lens (perpaps 70-210) that is fully automatic on the K10D. Budget to $500. I primarily shoot outdoors (fishing, wildlife).

    Thanks to all for your input.

    I bought a Sigma EX 70-200 f/2.8 new on ebay before they came out with a new (and some would say lesser quality) version of it. I also happened to pick it up before it had the sought after reputation it does now, and got it for $600. You may have some luck doing the same. It's a really nice, sharp lens. I have no idea what they are going for now, but a few months ago when there was a major shortage, they were going for around $1200. Worth a look. Otherwise for that focal range, I'm not sure what to recommend.
