FA31 and FA77. buy the K-5 next year when it becomes cheaper + bing cashback + tax refund. then decide whether you'll sell either K20D or k-x. 2 bodies would be enough and I don't think you would need a 3rd APS-C body unless if it's a compact X100 or a 46MP (MF resolution) SD1 APS-C camera.

GREAT choice...adding the tripod, you already have a head, right? But a good tripod is something I think a lot of us learn the hard way. I know I went very cheap at first, seriously a $7 thrift shop special, which eventually fell apart in my hands, then I sprung for a real nice tripod and 3-way head that works well for what I shoot most.

And of course the 43ltd + 77ltd is a great combo which will let you take a lifetime of wonderful shots!!

Isn't it fun helping other people spend their money?
Well, a fine choice no doubt. Not only can you not go wrong, you can't be any more right with the FA ltds!
