> Lenses HAVE to cost more than a camera!!!I echo that! The little Pentax K-X I am playing with came with a
loaned Sigma F/1.4 30mm "Prime" lens that cost quite a bit more than the
camera and indeed is rather bulky and tends to look disproportionately
huge when attached. But my wife and I went to a party the other
evening and the combination of low-noise 1600 ISO, anti-shake in the
camera, and a fast F/1.4 lens meant that I got lots and lots of good
candid shots of the party goers. So I would say the lens is well
worth it and a great combination with the camera. I was surprised. It
is a lens I would never have thought of buying, but proved really
good to use. I must see if it is reviewed anywhere and what others
think of it.
I am loaning the guy who sold me the K-7 my Cosina Leica-mount lenses for
his Epson RD digital rangefinder camera. He loaned me the Sigma in return.
It's a whole different world from panoramas, and lots of fun.
