    I think the bundle price is great. Over here in SG you can't even get those items second hand.

    Pentax P-TTL Sigma EF-530 DG ST Flash, its about SG$190.

    has anyone used before? Can its recycle time keep up with the K20D burst fire mode?

    Wow, that's just too much for the FA 31mm.

    I paid around 1500SGD for mine 3 years ago, and it's a second hand

    But now the prices for FA Limiteds have come down a lot. You shouldn't pay over 1150SGD for a brand new FA31

    Ha. Nvm, at least fengwei's USD1.5k for a second hand is a consolation to me. Sorry, not to dig at you fengwei, just trying to console myself. But the back-focus is damn annoying... agggr!! grr!!! live with it bah... "A characteristeric flaw makes a perfect item more perfect!" - scorpioh d:

    Change to K20D and your focusing woes will go away.
    Plus the CMOS sensor is so much better.

    Actually I am waiting for the next update. probably k30d? k10d still serving me well for my needs - havnt really exhausted my options with it. My policy is to invest in good lens first...

    At this point might as well wait.

    Having said that, I'm not so sure that "buying good lens" is really the proper advice any longer, because the body price is really the price for film + body. Paying for good film is definitely a good idea.

    Perhaps the real answer is - upgrade everything! haha.
