Hello everyone,

I've just decided to join your wonderful site, after many hours of reading...

also, as you have might noticed in my title, I'm french
I'm a student currently living in England for an internship, and I've already planned to take advantage of the lower prices here !

I'm currently shooting with my K100d and some lenses : 18-55, 50-200, sigma 10-20, 43mm f1.9 ltd, S-Takumar 50mm f1.4, SMC-Takumar 85mm f1.8, SMC-Takumar 35mm f3.5, Zenitar 16mm fish-eye (not much using these last two )
But I've planned to change this body to a shiny K20d !

I enjoy to takes pictures of cars, but also landscapes...

Thanks everyone ...

For the prices, on some lenses the price is a lower, and on some "kits" too (the k20d+16-50 is 100 cheaper, without compting the rebate) ... and with the actual rebates (that we don't have in France ) and with the very competive prices at SRS .... it's quite tempting !

No need for that, I'm living in England up to the end of January

the only problem is : wich lens to choose between the 16-45 and the 16-50 with a k20d ?
Is the 16-50 worth the extra cash ... It has many advantages (f2.8, SDM and Seals) but it's a lot of money (I would have taken the 17-70 if it was a bit cheaper)

BTW, talking about the 16-50, have you heard about the problems of this lens ?
In many french forum I've read that some 16-50 are not "good copies"
This makes me hesitate more ...

My advice would be jump in now and get a DA* 16-50 from Chris @ SRS.

If you then had any problems (highly unlikely in my view) then Chris would be the man to sort them out.
