It arrived 24 hours later

My new DA*50-135 2.8 arrived today to go with my Tamron 17-50 2.8 now all I need is something to go from 135 to 500... That will make my main kit, then have the rest of my lenses for my K100D.. Thanks for the help guys.
Should I test this thing some how???

SWEET!

Congrats! Best to really test it outside, but take a few shots of salt shakers (or posed 'portraits' of people) or something to tide you over!

Some issues (if any) will apear in the future anyway. The more you photograph and the more you pixel-peep the more sure you can be about the lens.
Or just forget it and just use it

I just got mine today too, did the plastic bag that houses the Pentax bag have a bag of desiccant in it?

Edit: I did have it the desiccant pack, it was just thrown to the side...my mistake. So excited to try this thing out, have to wait to get home from work!
