Thanks Dave ! I have had a good offer for my K7 (US$670) so I may accept that and get another K5 while I'm waiting for the first one to come back.

This shot is of a commonly found garden fly, it was taken with the Tamron 90 & a x2 Macro TC, on a Velbon rail / Benro tripod and is of 4 shots stacked to get the DoF in the eyes. I just love insects that have compound eyes - they are always my point of focus (excuse the pun).

Thought you all might want to see an 85% crop of that eye :

Excellent detail in what I'd call an "In your face" macro!

Thanks Charlie !

Sacrilege ! I keep looking at that bad boy and wondering if it would give me anything over the Tamron 90 except WR. Let me know how it goes !
