Ordered the DA 10-17 :)

Sure next week the K7 will be out or announced and I will say I should have got that instead but I figure what the heck, Maybe they announce it but it will not be available for a few months. Placed my order to B&H for the DA10-17 should be here Monday It was so much fun to use I just knew I would get it.

Oh you bast...! Er... I mean oh goodie!

I am so jealous I've no doubt you'll have an awesome time with that lens. It's definetly on my list... as soon as darn lens prices come back down a little in Canada.

I'm second in line, right behind you. I'm seriously considering using "plastic" and B&H.

Yves, well since the Canadian dollar has slowly been coming back up it's only a matter of time until it's really worth it to order one from BH.

LOLOL I looked here first in the Marketplace and then just said to heck with it. B&H no worries and worth the few extra bucks for new and not just new to me. Hope to have it by Monday

Enjoy it, Pat. As you've rented one, you know this lens is a gas. And . . . . the K-7 will still be there; in a few months it'll likely be cheaper and (most) of the bugs'll be dead.

I was considering selling mine, but I just recently read the DA10-17 fever thread and reconsidered. It's a fun lens for sure, but takes practice. Hope you enjoy it!

You will love that lens. I've had mine now 3 or 4 weeks and I bring with me everywhere.
