What will be the first lens on your K-7

So my K-7 is out for delivery (woo hoo). My question of the day:

What will be the first lens you put on your new body?

Mine will likely be my 31mm. How about you?

I started with the K85mm/1.8....but I was popping on and off old lenses constantly last night and was acting like a kid in a candy store.....while my wife rolled her I'll usually have the 16-50 on it..

I'll probably start with the SMCT 85/1.8 and try out the video mode first thing...then slap on some of my prime AF screwmount lenses to check out how peppy the AF is. Then drool for a few hours.

Mine is between Phoenix and Salt Lake. Won't get it until tomorrow.

I'm currently enthralled with the Sigma 10-20mm and will probably try that first but I'm moving toward primes and will probably use my 41mm as standard lens with it.

FA31/1.8, followed quickly by the DA*55/1.5 and DA* 60-250.
I've had my K-7 since last Friday.

The 40mm Pentax-M pancake

The 40mm Pentax-M pancake, because it looks nice and should tell if the sensor resolution really is better than the glass.
Or the Sigma 180mm macro to have better detail than using the 2x converter.
No, the Bigma, to see if I can finally use autofocus on flying birds, like all the other people can...
Or just my M 50 1.4 inside without white balance disasters..
Never mind, I have to wait till August playing with my K100

Whichever one is closest to me at the time... Rumor has it, it may be my 17-50 Tammy.

Have my FA-35 sitting on my desk here at work with a SanDisk 16GB card right on top it waiting for the girls upstairs to call down and tell me the UPS guy got here. Chosen for the very scientific and rigorous reason that I don't have any limiteds and my zooms don't fit in my pocket.

I'm still waiting for my K-7 pre-order to come in

Three new lenses arrived yesterday
DA* 55mm F/1.4
DA* 16-50mm F/2.8
DA* 60-250mm F/4

But no camera body to put them on

Hopefully gets here soon.
