    My girlfriend has a Pentax ZX-M with the 50mm lens. I was thinking about getting her another lens as a gift and was wondering what the next logical lens would be. A zoom lens? A telephoto lens? Wide angle? She's old-school and will only use the camera in manual mode, so the lens has to be capable of manual focus.

    The first lens that I bought (after the 50mm) was a 135mm. It's a good lens for portraits and medium telephoto shots. My next lens was a 24mm wide angle. Next, I bought a bellows system for close up work. After that, I bought a 400mm for longer telephoto shots.

    However, a good zoom lens is always a good choice but they're going to be a bit more expensive than prime lenses.
