Finally Placed my order

I've been going back and forth reading camera reviews for several months trying to decide what to order and finally made up my mind last night. Most of my items have already been shipped out today - at least the important ones!
(i had a 40d over a year ago but got out it due to health reasons which are cleared up now).

Pentax k-7
Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 DG HS II
Tiffent 77mm Essentials kit (came with above lens)
Sigma 17-70 F2.8-4 DC HSM
Hoya 72 Filter kit
Extra Battery
Lowepro Fastpack 250
16GB SDHC Card


Super Excited. Everthing should be here (minus the backpack, spare battery, and hoya filters) by Thursday - Super excited

Cool. I remember the feeling! Waiting to charge the battery will seem like forever.

You're not wrong, seemed an eternity until the battery was fully charged. I now have 3 batteries so I don't go through that again.

Welcome to the forum and that is quite a collection. There is a wealth of knowledge here that will surely help you out. Since you just got your K7 I would suggest that you check out the DSLR section if you have any questions on your new camera. I hope to see some photos from you soon.

when I got my k-7 I charged it for like 10 minutes. thats all I could stand. I popped it in, fired it up and it had enough power to let me mount one of my Takumar 55's and start shooting. I let it charge fully that night.

Fortunately, I started out with the K200d. Hysterical But I remember what that was like for the K20d.

thechucked, Welcome to PentaxForums! Whether your interest is dSLR & lenses, film photograph or digital, medium (6 x 7, 645, and 645D) format, subminiature (110), or collecting vintage bodies & glass (Spoties, Taks etc) or a combination of the above, you are at the right place. I'm looking forward to seeing some images.
