I can stay tuned, but my purse may be empty by then!!! Just jumped on the D7000 + 18-140 kit for $800!
But I have a nice (mini) pentax lens collection and need a competing deal to keep me from straying to the dark side!

Midnight is the first moment of the next day

so if we say Midnight Wednesday, that was 12:00 Wednesday morning

11:58 Tuesday, 11:59 Tuesday, ||| 12:00 Wednesday, 12:01 Wednesday

I'm guessing there has been some confusion about this on the forum recently.. (not specifically with you but in general) that could throw everyone off by a day..

Hm...
two for the DA* 200mm...
two for the DA* 300mm...

To those that have and like the DA* 200mm how prone is it to purple fringing?
Welcome to Photozone! shows/suggests it can be a problem.
Their review is based on a 2008 model and a K10D.
PF really bugs me.
I have the three-amigos and the 31 PFs at times.
Pisses me off such that I rarely use it.
At or below F3.5 purple fringing is an issue on the 200. But it is quite easily remedied in Lightroom. Above F3.5, there is no significant fringing and the image is crystal clear. I have been extremely happy with IQ of the 200.

Here's one of many examples you can find in my flick stream: Snow Leopard is Bored | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

Adorama News

I was price shopping on the Adorama website and had the K50 with the 18-135 and 35mm Prime in the cart with memory card, carry bag and 3 year Pentax warranty in the cart for $1233 including shipping. The chat window popped up and I asked if the items in my cart were in the Black Friday specials. Jason told me to order now because they often sell out rapidly on the specials and that if the price goes lower within 30 days just notify them and they will price match and give me a credit for the price difference. I ordered on the spot.

Seconded. Is it in 6.5 hours, or 30.5 hours? Or some other time?

Hmm that doesn't sound like too much of a discount? They were recently selling K-50's with 18-135mm WR, card, bag & additional 2 year warranty for $849, and then by buying that very bundle you could add the 35mm lens for like $117.

I would keep your eyes open the next few days, I bet a bundle like that can be had for cheaper and you can try to get that price match.

Thanks, I will keep a look out for a drop in price.

Yeah, I got curious and started to look for last year's Black Friday, which apparently started in the early AM hours on Thursday 22nd: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/94-pentax-price-watch/206028-up-60-off-pe...y-special.html and https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/94-pentax-price-watch/206027-up-60-off-pe...y-special.html

I signed up here, too, I guess. A newbie looking at his first prime lens in the 35mm ltd, or what else occurs to me in the next hours I spend looking through more stuff. I'll be staying awake tonight!

What about bodies? Sadly, the k2000 I bought has a frozen MF-AF switch. So, I may just upgrade my K-x & give dd my K-x. I *know* how I've treated my camera.
