    Believe me, the next model (K20D) will be an alot better cam I'm sure you'd love to upgrade when you see its testing photos (some already seen them btw )

    i won't mind

    but the k10d here is going for 450 pounds body only.

    sickening

    err... not really Nikon gearheads already started dumping when D300 announced, so many D200s on the used market.

    Ok I must heed the advise of Pentax sifu.
    After all, if I can hold back buying the K10D for the last few months, I guess I can afford to wait a little longer. Anyway all will be clear come 3rd week of Jan 2008.

    Thanks fengwei for the info. I can sense you will sure get one to play with it. I hope i can hold back the temptation to upgrade and buying when it's out. It's not gonna be easy not to get one

    The only way to overcome temptation is to yield to it.

    My colleague has a better solution to overcoming temptations....
    "Find another one" he says.
    May I recommend the highly elusive FA77 or the very new DA* lenses that's on everyone's 'must buy' list?

    Nah, I'd suggest to buy the FA*85/1.4, FA*28-70/2.8, FA*200/2.8, FA*300/2.8

    If want to get long tele lenses must aim for the newer Pentax lenses on the roadmap because SDM will definitely out perform the slotted drive focusing of the FA*s at least in focusing speed and quietness. Plus the newer lenses will probably be much lighter in weight.

    So fengwei, time to let go of your FA* teles... they aren't gonna be worth much pretty soon.

    Well, one thing for sure, my FA*28-70 AF faster than the DA*1650. And the AF speed on FA*200/2.8 and FA*300/4.5 is already pretty fast. Don't think the newer ones would be any faster but quieter only. I don't really care about the noise, actually quite like the sound

    SDM is mainly meant for quiet AF but not really guaranteed faster


    Ever since the DA*1650 came out, the price for FA*2870 has gone up so high, it's easily over 2k SGD almost everywhere including JP. I'm guessing the same would happen to FA*200/2.8 and FA*300/4.5 when the DA*200 and 300 came out

    And only then, I'd see if I'm gonna let go off the FA* tele lenses, if ever at all

    Only when all Pentax PK mount dSLR cameras on the market stopped working and there is no new one available, then I might let them go

    Believe me, your colleague solutions will not work..sooner or later will still bound to get it.

    Those lens is not must buy lah. Need than buy. Too many lenses cause headache sometimes.
