Thanks Gawan, and nope, I don't. Not yet. I wanted to buy K200 and there were none available here in Croatia. Now I'm in dilemma. I was thinking about either buying K20 or waiting for K300. Since I would really like to spend my vacation with a new camera I think I will buy K20 in a week or two.

Btw, this was my first DSLR adventure and I liked it.

Croatia looks very beautiful. Hope you get your own Pentax DSLR soon and keep posting nice series like this one. I'll look forward to more. Welcome to the forum!

Thank you. I hope too. Another dilemma I have is should I save some money, get K20 with kit lens and then buy some MF, cheaper 50-200 or go for bundle with DA 50-200mm but for extra 150?

I'm not familiar with your currency so can't evaluate how much extra you would be paying for the bundle. What I can tell you is that I've been very happy with my DA 50-200mm. You will get mixed reviews on it, and most seem to prefer the the DA 55-300mm, but it's about twice the price. I recently bought the DA 55-300mm and like it a lot, but I've not quite been able to part the DA 50-200mm. If you can get the DA 50-200mm for a good price and it meets your focal length needs, I wouldn't hesitate to buy it. I have two galleries of photos taken exclusively with the DA 50-200mm here:

A few of the cycling photos I've had printed at 11x14 inches and they are tack sharp with very good color.

Hope that helps with your decision.

Well prices in Europe are higher then in USA, I think.
K20, 18-55mm + 50-200mm costs about 1530$ here. (1320$ without 50-200mm).

Thanks for the tip, I will think about it, and nice pictures of that bicycle and boat races.
