Just the Beginning of this MADNESS

I'm not too new here but my new LBA has recently just started

I bought my first DSLR (K100D Super) back in October 2008 and upgraded to the K200D shortly after in summer of 2009 (gave it away to my female friend who appreciates me a lot more now). I was shooting with just a terrible Sigma 28-105mm lens until recently... I still have that lens along with the Sigma 70-300mm but.......

Someone (or should I say forum) gave me the slightest hint that the lenses are what makes pictures. Now look at what I started buying within the past 2 months? Yes, everything you see in this picture started in late April up until now. If I didn't get that hint, I was destined to believe Pentax sucked. Thanks for the memo!

Excuse me while I pause to wipe a tear from eye.

And to bow down to you.

I'll say this. I spent about... well I don't even want to know and I certainly don't want to know how much it would be if I were shooting with that Canwagon brand with equivalent lenses...

I noticed the same thing.

And what was in those two boxes at the top of the right stack that you can't read?

I bought the K-x for my younger sister (her birthday is actually today!). My younger brother can share too but for some reason he's not into SLRs like that.. *shrugs*

So since the K-7 is mine I bought the 55 for me and have decided to keep the 50 for those two to use. Same story with the flashes...

K-7 Battery Grip, K-7 Battery charger, K200d Battery grip, and I don't know if you can see it but there's a tiny box for the extra K-7 battery

Ps. And for anyone considering those cheap third party batteries and chargers, mine went poopy after one week of use.... just fyi

Although I do have enough right now to buy that 100mm 2.8 Macro and that 55-300mm... but I think it's time to take a break
