Found this very useful body cap for my K-70 highly recommended

Just took delivery of my DA 40mm xs today and I love it. I got this sold, as new unused and boxed off eBay for 120 cheaper than Amazon and thought what the hell worst case scenario its a fake or a very expensive body cap, either way worth a punt. I haven't seen many pics of this mounted on a camera so here is one of it on my K-70, Also took a pic of the free gifts thrown in by the seller a card reader and a mini tripod. first pic taken with my phone 2nd quick snap with the new kit. This will definetly be in my bag when I go to Italy this year.

Thanks I know it wont help my inadequacies of taking stunning pics but its quick at focussing lightweight to carry and I think it might be pretty good all rounder for shooting in Italy makes the camera so easy to carry around.

I hope you enjoy this lens as much as I and many other Pentaxians do.

I have found it to be a versatile and convenient lens for travelling.

It's a nice lens, and you'll now find that you can slip the camera into a large jacket pocket pretty easily. Makes a nice travel grab and go combo.

Its a very cable lens. Even though I have a K-1, I still use this lens on my K-01 when travelling light and it can deliver great results.

Enjoy!

Thanks for the reassurances. Even at full price this has to be one of the best value for money lenses out there. Been snapping away with it today and so far am delighted with the results once I get used to the camera it will only get better, I'm surprised there is not more hype around this lens surely for versatility it has to be one of the best out there.
