FWIW, this thread has had nearly 50 replies in 2 hours. EPIC!
That is less than one per 2 minutes, pathetic.
edit: could be due to my peck and hunt typing.

I'm sorry I can't help with the 21Ltd issue as I am having the same internal conflict. I want the 21, I have the 15, 31, and 40 so I don't need the 21, but I WANT THE 21. If cost isnt an issue, buy it. Life is short and none of us is going to come out of it alive anyway.
Parallax, your input is appreciated.

It kind of reminds me of the bar...everyone is talking at once and there are several conversations going at once.

Never knew a Finn that could type. I always thought it was something in the gene pool. I cannot type. Case confirmed.

Booyah! congratulations proud papa.



Me too. Just once....

Also, I want one of those ACME black holes.
Booyah is a stew with unknown ingredients, cooked primarily in Northeast Minneapolis in huge kettles. They have a festival every year for newcomers.

You are correct. Try going into the Akeley Muni to buy anything to go. Folks yell at you to come talk, the bartender is too busy for Off Sale, might as well sit down for a beer.

Quick reply to Parallax you are correct about the 21 and I probably don't need it but the price is excellent at B&H and I might kick the bucket tomorrow, leaving that lovely lens to my Heirs. But I should have a chance to use it, doncha know? So this mini thread can be ignored by all: I will not buy a K3 until I have paid for my daughter's wedding. But I will buy a lens!!!

Hopefully you'll get the last one so I can quit fretting about it.

You know I am about ready to drop the hammer on a K5IIs myself.

I just gotta hit one more bird . . . . . . . . wait, I gotta miss one, yeah that's it. That's the ticket!

Miss 'em.
Hope you did not require sudden avoidance maneuver SAM 1.0. That maneuver is high risk and prone to failure. Kill the bird. Or the critter. I have always told my kids and wife, "hit it but do not swerve." so far, it works.

Oh, I doubt their inventory is that low. Pentax own site still listed the lens as available. Actually, waiting could achieve a lower price. Or not. Scarcity could kick in. But I am slightly concerned about possible out-of-stock issues of the green stripe. Disclaimer: I own the 15mm and 70mm HD lenses and find no loss of starburst elements in street light shots or direct solar attempts.
