    Hello guys and gals...I was wondering if you could give me some advice as to what lens to use with a Pentax *ist DL. Im either taking pics of big nature scenes or pictures of individual flowers or closeup shots of my dogs/daughter etc...

    Is there a lens that would give me the ability to take pics of full scenes and do closeup shots as well? Or would that require two different lenses?

    Thanks for the help and please excuse my elementary questions! Im ust upgrading from point and shoot cameras!


    THANKS!

    how new to photography are you?

    what do you plan on shooting?

    are you gonna be more in the day or night, or in between?

    Whats your budget?

    I got really good with the point and shoots....So Im new to SLRs

    99% of the time during good daylight

    Shooting mostly shots of people on the street about 20-75 ft away and closeups of my daughter and friends

    Also shooting nature scenery

    Budget for a lens is around 200-300$

    Thanks for the advice and I hope that helps!

    The Pentax DA 50-200 gets good reviews from most that have it, and it is well within your budget.
