W00t I finally received half my order today ! The final order was split between Prodigital and B&H ... here's what it looks like:

1x K10D Body
1x Tamron XR Di 28-75mm f/2.8
1x Pentax DA 50-200 f/4-5.6
1x Pentax FA 50mm f/1.4
1x Pentax DA 12-24mm f/4

3x 2GB SD Extreme III
1x D-L150 BATTERY for K10D
1x PENTAX D-BG2 Grip
1x Remote (battery,grip and remote all came together as a package)
1x O-ME53 Magnifying Eyecup for Pentax Digital SLR Cameras
1x Lowepro Sling Shot 300 AW Digital Camera Bag Back Pack
1x Pentax PEAF540FGZ AF-540 FGZ P-TTL Shoe Mount Flash

1x Bogen / Manfrotto 055MF3 Magfiber Pro Carbon Fiber 3-Section Tripod with 3275 Compact Geared Head
And what I got today:

I already went outside and took about 100 shots... I got only one lens so far, Tamrom and 50mm arrives on Monday, whereas the 12-24mm was BO with the Eyecup at Prodigital.

Only issue I've ran in is sometimes at 200mm, MF flashes in the viewfinder and I can't seem to find out why!

Will post some pertinent pictures when I have some

Pictures... took me a while I know !

Current lenses:
Pentax 50-200 f/4-5.6
Pentax 50 f/1.4
Tamron 28-75 f/2.8
Pentax 12-24 f/4
Voigtlander 125 f/2.5

Sadly the 50-200 is barely if ever used... I've learned to love the AF540Z, it's essential in all my night inddor portraits... enough talking...

Taken with Voigtlander that I received today. Sadly was pissing all day outside so I had to stay inside, hence the weird lightning.

Taken with the Tamron... the K10D has AF issues with low contrast subjects, the eyes were in dead center and yet the noise came sharp and eyes blurry... grrr

Taken with the 50mm in a restaurant with flash using a stofen diffuser bounced off the ceiling... works great imho, just starting to discover how to use the flash properly.

Taken with the 28-75... didnt have the 12-24 at the time. B&W processing in Photoshop

Another taken with the 50mm ...
also with flash.

I'm really having a blast !
