A quick gear roll call for my K-5 as at 29 May 2011.

2 additions: the Sigma 50-150mm f2.8 and a knock-off vertical grip for the K-5 body.

I was very reluctant prior to purchasing the vertical grip due to the extra weight. To my surprise, it actually makes holding the camera feel lighter. The vertical grip for portraits is also a big hit, as well as the ability to use AA batteries if necessary.

Overall, the gear covers from 8mm to 300mm except 17mm which I now call "Stupid Seventeen". In equivalent term: 12mm to 456mm, except 26mm. Or in PnS term: 37.5X zoom gear.

There are 4 zooms and 2 primes. The heaviest is 770g (Sigma 50-150 f2.8) and lightest is 215g (35mm ltd).

I almost exclusively use the Tamron SP 90mm macro with the 2X teleconverter so effectively it's a 180mm f5.0 macro lens. As a result, the combo has the heaviest working weight - feels heavier than the Sigma 50-150.

First row, from left:
Sigma 8-16mm f/4.5-5.6 DC HSM (the tourist's dream)
Tamron SP 90mm f2.5 macro with Tamron 2X teleconverter and Adaptall2-PK/A adapter (dedicated macro lens)
Sigma 50-150mm f2.8 EX DC HSM (the portrait lens)
Tamron AF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 Di LD Macro 1:2 (safari lens)
