Ordered K100D today

Started researching DSLRs before the K10D was announced. My research led me to believe the K100D was my best choice. Then the K10D was announced. Thought about it for awhile, decided not to wait for the K10D.

So today I ordered the K100D from B&H Photo. (I live in the boonies, none of the camera stores near me have the K100D in stock. Guy at Ritz Camera said he'd get one in for me to look at, but he didn't come through.)

Ordered the kit lens and the DA 50-200. Plan to add the FA 50 f/1.4 eventually.

Looking forward to delivery sometime next week.

I'm a little apprehensive, shelling out $900 sight unseen but at the same time, I figure so many happy owners over at dpreview wouldn't steer me wrong.

I ordered the K100D yesterday from beachcamera...$587 including the 18-55 kit lens and it will be delivered tomorrow (they always ship in 1-2 days even when you request the 7-10 day free shipping). I waited for the K10 official release but even though it looks like a great camera I decided the K100 was a better fit for me, both for the price and the fact that I'm a beginner to the DSLR world.

I'm also buying it sight unseen since the closest place that "might" have it on display is 2 hours south of me. I've read so many good reviews of the camera and lots of people like how it feels in their hands so I figured I would take the chance this time although normally I always like to handle a camera before I take the plunge!! I'll probably order the DA 50-200 before the rebate offer expires next month.

Thanks, Buddha. 95% of me is confident I've made the perfect choice for me. 5% of me wishes I could have held the camera in my hands before placing the order. 10% knows that I've done this kind of thing before and have yet to get burned or have regrets.

That's 110%. (I always give 110% to anything I do.)
