    You don't need a new lens if you don't know what you need.

    My thoughts exactly. What shots are you unable to get with your current lens that makes you feel you need a second lenses?

    I need something longer. Like 28-105 or something like that
    But I dont know what to get. I want a lens what is sharper or the same sharp like the pentax 18-55 kit lens.

    I fail to understand all people who ask for what next... what, do they not know themselves what they want? How can someone on the other side of the earth know what YOU want better than yourself? Just boggles the mind.

    Sorry, I sincerely am not taking it out on you, just airing an opinion.

    I will help you by saying this... there are a million places on the net just overloaded with information, do not be afraid to do a little personal research. I can guarantee you that if you leave the choice of selecting what is good for you to someone else, your chances that it *will* be the right choice for you are slim to none.
