That would be really nice to know actually. It would be nice to play with some high-end glass.

Then again, being in London you're quite lucky to be able to even *buy* lenses instore (srs microsystems are meant to be good - I've got a couple of lenses on order with them at the moment).

Here in Leeds not a single camera shop that I've found even stock Pentax. Dale Photographic, who are excellent for Canikon told me their price just wouldn't be competetive because they would need to order Pentax in specially for me, and they didn't even bother quoting me the actual values.

Thanks m42geo, that's good to know. Their used prices are a bit steep, it has to be said - 10% cheaper than new on DA* glass - I'd rather have the full warranty...

Actually, there isn't a LCA in Leeds is there? I just searched on their site and the closest to my postcode is Manchester. Might have been closed down for all I know - only been in Leeds for a couple of years.
