Your dream Pentax camera/lens kit

I take wildlife photos in the winter primarily and other seasons too, for that matter.

In the late spring, summer and early fall...vintage car, motorcycle and truck photos.

In view of these pursuits this would be the perfect Pentax outfit....for me anyways:
  • Pentax K7 with battery grip-I have big hands and like to carry an extra battery, plus have space in the grip for an extra memory card and remote.
  • Pentax 300 mm F 4 with Pentax extender- birds, wildlife
  • Pentax 500 or 600 mm (older unless Pentax brings out a new super telephoto)
  • Pentax 10-17 mm fisheye-creative shots of everything
  • Pentax 12-24 mm wide angle for landscapes and vehicles
  • Pentax Macro 100 mm F 2.8 water resistant- just released for car pix and nature pix

That's mine what is your dream list ?

Also a KX body ...always handy to have an extra body.

Yep, can't do much better than K-7+grip, all FA limiteds, all DA*s (other than 300) with that upcoming SDM II technology (am I dreaming?), DA 12-24 and 10-17, Voigt 125 and 180, FA* 300/2.8...

I suppose a 67II and some glass for that would probably figure prominently.

there was something like this a few years ago

my response is unchanged, one of everything pentax has made

In all honesty however, I believe it would be the following,

2 *istD with grips, one with split image finder one without
1 K10D with grip
1 K20D with grip and split image
1 K7 with Grip

for lenses
-a full set of K's, plus
- A20mm F1.2, A 85 F1.4, A 135 F1.8, A 300 F2.8 and A400F2.8 and the 1.4x and 2x rear converters for the 400.
- perhaps the DA 200F2.8 and 300 F4 plus 12-24, 16-50 and 50-135
- perhaps sigma 300 F2.8 and 500f4.5

plus, for a lot of fun and games, a set of tak's including 85mmF1.8 100mm F2, but also covering 17mm through 200.

can assume 2 AF500FTZ and 2 AF 540 FGZ as well

My basic dream outfit:
A K10D with FA31LTD as primary lens
DA21LTD and DA*60-250 to cater for my wide-angle and tele needs

Looks like I come out cheap compared to the others

Dreaming a bit more:
FA77LTD (just because I like primes)

IIRC, my reply on that thread was - -

THREE of everything Pentax ever made:
1 set to use
1 set to keep NIB for myself
1 set to establish a Pentax Museum
