    congrats on the purchase. i'm sure you will really enjoy it.
    How about if I purchase with 18-55mm WR + 50-200mm WR combo, good enough for K5?

    I pre-order and got a call from emjay the day after, asking me to collect the camera the next day (so 2 days after i place the pre order). Apparently, it was quite smooth for me. The only problem is they run out of the 35mm lens so my cam is lens-less now.

    I've rejoin the dark side after going one round of trying out the smaller cameras after selling my k7...

    Thanks Denis.
    My concern is the AF speed which I tested just now with 17-50 F2.8 is alot faster than k-x.
    Hope it's fast enuff for my DA*300+TC combo.

    No worries bro, even if I getting the D7000, I'll still keep my K-X or upgrade to K-R.
    I still love Pentax small prime lenses, its natural & accurate colors & it's dynamic range.

    Seem no one really use kit lens
    I assume the lens 18-55mm WR and 50-200mm WR shd be a lousy lens

    Don't be so quick to put down these lenses.
    I think Creampuff/Fengwei did a quick shootout with other expensive alternatives and the differences were barely noticeable.

    It's just that most seniors here already have their own preferred lens combo.
    Brand loyalty? Pffttt...| Got Flickr?
    I shoot JPEG (got a problem with that?)
