Got mine tonight to complete my prime setup (at least for now) with the 21, 43 and 77 in silver. Now I just need to pick up a zoom to capture the kids sporting activities.

Hmm, does the zoom have to be silver? That might limit your options, but it would still be great glass!

LOL. I think my options for a silver zoom are limited, but black looks good as well and functions just the same.

I have a fairly simple (lens porn) request that hopefully someone out there can help me out with. I have seen plenty of shots of silver lenses (DA & FA) on silver bodies, however I have never seen an image of a silver lens on a black body but would love to see how it looks. I have had a pretty extensive search of this site, google images and other pentax sites without success. Could someone post some images of silver limited lenses on an all black body please?

Hey Frank, I bet the AF is so fast on that setup you can't even see it move!

Great, thanks all. Found a few more on Flickr too - I don't know why I didn't think of doing a search on there earlier.

Yeah, 'AF' is instant, but not accurate most time. Lucky it got 'quickshift' so I can fine tune the focusing manually whenever I want
