stupid LBA... must... resist... limited lenses...

i was on craigslist yesterday and typed "pentax" into the search box for the hell of it and i get this:
Pentax Kit - bodies, lenses, accessories

QuoteQuote:
Pentax 31 mm 1.8 limited lens: $700
With caps, soft case and box.

Pentax 77 mm 1.8 limited lens: $550
With caps and soft case.

These limiteds are beauties
sigh... i just spent a ton of money on the K-7 and a nice tripod and here is this ad, just teasing me...

wow, as a student I think I would forgo eating or other activities to pay those prices, or maybe get a loan or early xmas present !

Or use my already severly depleted K7 fund (just bought the 77mm).........

I would love to, especialy since my dad is willing to buy a K7 and trade it for my k10 + grip since he thinks i 'll put it to better use ( though i think a k-x might be better for him with the high iso and video - doesnt need WR and needs ISO).

too bad im not in seattle otherwise i would have bought it.

Go for the FA77!
At once!

Me and my FA77 (ahm, and also my wife) spend a nice day at the sea:









Any questions?

I m pretty sure you can buy it, try it out, and resell it to me for eg. !
but i'm pretty sure you won't let go of it once you have it into your hands.

screw eating !
