WOW!

So I waited 3 days and the listing Pentax K-50 Digital SLR Camera with 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 10916 B&H went from $639 to $736.95...

Well that was not expected.

Regardless I am better off now: I purchases a used k-30 body with extra battery from a member here, and just won a bid on ebay [I know...] for the 18-135mm wr lens.
Also picked up a Rikenon 50mm 1.7 manual lens just to play around with...
Altogether spent $559.

So I saved $80 and got another lens to mess around with...

Thanks everyone for the help!

WILL DO!

I already have LBA and I haven't even received my camera yet...

I'm very intrigued by all the prime lenses, especially all the older manual lenses.
Messing around with an old (very old) 35mm film I found at my girlfriends parents house; something about controlling everything on the lens by hand has this nostalgic feel about it.

I'll be looking for some Pentax-A and Pentax-M lenses in the weeks to come.
Feel free to PM me if you have a deal I should consider!

Thanks again everyone!
