the new DA* lenses intrigue me highly.

If the IQ is as good as with the DA*55, I think I may have to save my pennies.
However, if the SDM is not improved over the DA*55's speed... I may have to pass.
The F/2 aperture is not super fast, but if the new Pentax bodies can clean up their noise then we may have winners (or artsy noisy photos!).

Looks good, though. the 645D looks like an exciting prospect of a camera.

hey pentaxor... unfortunately, I will not be off until about 5pm.

I could meet with some people at 5pm for an early walkabout somewhere (or just play with each other's lenses. haha) and then have another meet at 7:15pm.

But for now, I'll set the official time at 7:15pm.

I think that would be ok. seems enough time from 5 to 8pm. too bad the FA135 from Peter can't make it on time.

I guess I'll be using the FA100 instead and the FA50/1.7.
