    Question Which lens next?

    Hi all,
    I am looking for some advice regarding which lens to have next?
    I have a pentax k200d and I have a 72-300 lens to go with it along with the standard lens that comes with it.
    What should I invest in next?
    My hubby is thinking a wide angle to give to me as a gift next and actually I am posing this question on his behalf because he asked me to. I love taking macro shots and I bought some close-up filters but should we invest in macro lens next? He's thinking wide angle landscape type shots for me because I also like taking mountain shots as well..
    Any thoughts?
    Thanks in advance for any ideas and opinions.

    I'm in the same situation Casil. Do you know any other Pentax shooters you could hang out with for a day and swap lenses? I know Vistek rents lenses maybe the other stores in town do too. They may even deduct the rental fee if you buy the lens. That way you can see which style of photography you like best and which lens works for you.

    The next two lenses on our list is a 10-22mm wide and also a 100mm Macro. We were torn between the two also for awhile but by speaking out loud to each other when we saw a shot that would benefit from one of those lenses, my wife and I realised we were seeing way more wide angle shots. Therefore the 10-22mm is next. Maybe this will help you decide Casil?
