Pentax K-x lens porn request

I'm close to buying the 15mm ltd for my K-x, so help push me over the edge by posting images of your camera with the 15mm mounted.

I mostly use the Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 and Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8, so I'm looking for a wide angle to complement those great lenses. I thought I was going to buy the Sigma 10-20mm, but I'm now leaning toward the 15mm since I could easily fit it into my small camera bag with one of the other two aforementioned lenses.

I have a white K-x, so ideally pictures will feature the 15mm mated to a white K-x, but really any images of the k-m/k-r/k-x in any color will do.

And if you have pictures of other sweet lenses on those bodies (especially other ltd lenses or the Sigma 10-20mm), feel free to post those too. Just try to keep the pics tasteful, and don't tell my wife!

If I remember this evening I'll oblige your request, hope your eyes can handle one mated with an Olive K-x, haha.

just think about these reasons and you should be pretty much settled.

Took the day off today (wanted to be home for my new 100mm WR macro to sign for it!).

Enjoy.

Sweet pics guys, thanks!

I believe I'm going to order the 15mm. I have an HTC Incredible I'm selling on eBay, so once that auction is complete tomorrow I should have enough play-money for the lens.

Can any post photos of a K-x with a Tamron 28-75. I'm buying that and the only thing worrying me is the size.

I have the Tamron 28-75mm and it's the primary lens on my K-x. I don't find it too large at all. I actually prefer the extra heft and the larger grip as compared to the kit lens. And as a bonus I think it looks very cool on the K-x. But even if I preferred the handling of the kit lens, the image quality of the 28-75mm would be enough to sway me.

Here's some pics of my K-x with the 28-75mm:

Repped you, and thanks. I'm definitely buying it now. And yeah, it looks very very cool.
