Bob; I haven't got a "shipping" notice yet, but still hoping it goes out today. I know the 50 F1.8 was on backorder, I hope they don't hold the entire order waiting for the lens.

Tina, thank you!

Give them a call - if this is the case, a little bit of polite persuasion might see them willing to split it.

I'll wait & see; the PayPal info recently changed from "pending" to "completed" for payment. They post that payment is not taken out of customer's account until shipping; so I'm guessing with them taking the pmt, shipping will follow today.

I'm hoping it's not too much larger than the K10D
wow, maybe not too much larger but packed with so much technology stuffs, it's a big jump from my K5 IIs so I can imagine the long flight from your K10D to K3 prepare to be surprise (in a very good way) and buy a new HDD ^^

I think you will be very pleased with the lens too.
Here's a grab test shot taken with my K-S2 when my 50mm came a few weeks ago:

I have to say, I always did and always will love my K-5. it's a unique camera with many endearing qualities. But I still remember the first day I went out with my K-3. It made an immediate impression.

Bob, it's great to get the free lens, and from your photos; looks like it will work fine!

Norm; I'm keeping one of my K10D's, as I'm like you, I'll always love it. The K10D is a great camera, but it was time to move up!

The one I like the most is ISO 80. I've thought about a K-3, but while the -5 is still going strong I'll roll on and see what the digital full-frame brings to the table. Right now I'm enjoying the stress-free bliss of a WR lens on my K-5 on cloudy days and knowing I'm pretty OK if the worst happens, while dabbling in the other sort of full-frame on the side - the type with the disposable multi-shot sensor that you mail away to get your pictures.
