This is what I want to buy, not sure if it will be in 2013:

To feed my LBA:

- Sigma 150-500mm f/5-6.3 AF APO DG OS HSM Telephoto Zoom Lens
- Pentax 100mm f/2.8 WR D FA smc Macro Lens
- Pentax DA 300mm F/4 ED (IF) SDM
- Pentax DA 35mm f/2.4 AL Lens

(This are all similar focal lengths, so not sure if I need them all, but the Tamron is fast, I like fast! ):
- Pentax 50-200mm f/4-5.6 ED WR Telephoto Zoom Lens
- Tamron AF 70-200mm f/2.8 Di LD IF Macro Lens
- Sigma 18-250mm f3.5-6.3 DC MACRO OS HSM
- Pentax DA 55-300mm f/4-5.8 ED Lens

This lens wouldn't fit in my budget either way, but is still on my wishlist:
- PENTAX telephoto HD PENTAX-DA560mmF​5.6ED AW

Some other stuff:
- Benro MeFoto A1350Q1T Transfunctional​ Tripod Kit (Titanium)
- Pentax AF540FGZ Flash
- Pentax GPS Unit O-GPS1
- Camera Rain Cover (for when I'm not using a WR lens)
- Lowepro Slingshot 302AW (have a 100AW, but it's a bit small)

That's it.... for now!

Another big spender! The lowepro slingshot will not fit them!

What do you plan to buy (photography related) in 2013?
A couple of Pentax FF bodies, but hey, said that in 2010, 2011, 2012. I hope I'm not still saying in 2014, 2015.

I can't help it, I see a lens, or some other accessory, I'm like "oooh, shiney, want!"

Whether or not I can afford it now, it goes on a list!

That Super Tak I posted in "Your Latest AcquisItion" thread was on impulse from a local camera shop, actually went to see if they had any K-mount telephotos, which they unfortunately (or fortunately?) didn't!

Hi

In the context of “the plan!” I’m wishing (…):

1 - a new Giottos tripod (125 euros);

2 - the Tamron 70-200 2.8 (735 euros) – just because one must have it and goes perfectly with the already owned Tamron 28-75 2.8 (it will come in the end if ever, as it’s difficult to justify it when one has already perfect good copies of the Sigma 75-300 4.0-5.6 and the Pentax DA 55-300 4.0-5.8)

A 4th Tripod grip (48 usd + transport + taxes..)
(http://www.4thdesign.net/bbs/zboard.php?id=tripodgrip&page=1&sn1=&divpage=1&...&desc=asc&no=2) for my Samsung Galaxy Note phone… imagine all those photos one can take with a tripod (any tripod!)

Best regards,

I think I've spent all my money already. In January I bought an iMac, a Time Capsule, Apple TV and a superdrive. This week I bought a Q, then I ordered extra batteries and a compact charger. This afternoon I ordered a Q-K adapter and a hood for the zoom. I'd like to buy a 300mm prime, but I need to save some money first.

It's all great kit enjoy, I renewed my work station a few months back, may I suggest that you consider buying an iBox UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) unit, purchased through Apple, just to keep it all safe.

I hope I would sell more than buy as I have already spent more than I planned What I would like to buy is

-K-5IIs at the end of the year if price goes down somewhere around 700€ (as K-5, but it's most likely too soon for that)
-Fast full frame compatible 35mm lens

What I most likely buy is

-gasoline
-holiday trip
-Q for my GF (so she wont steal mine)

After purchasing a 60-250 at the end of 2012, my spending will be closely monitored by my boss.. er, wife.

I've just ordered a Ape Cubeze insert to go into my hiking backpack, apart from that I hope my time will be spent using my gear more often than in 2012.

Considering a used 645/645N.
Just a thought that might pass, but if it happens, it will be towards the end of the year.

Maybe a used 14-42 kit lens for my Pen but nothing else. I'm saving up for a good sized dry box and a K-30 or K-5 used body and that definitely won't happen till next year.

For me:

Already got a tripod (Benro A1350Q1, DA 35mm, maybe one (functional?) Pentax MX and one Pentax ME with SMC 28mm and SMC 50mm but what is left is:

A Q or K-01
Spare batteries for the Q or the K-01
Tamron 10-24mm

And depending on my job situation... K-30/K-5 Classic... We will see...
