Sweet! I almost got the same "new gear" rush watching you open it up.

Hope you enjoy it!

Just a word of warning. As of June 2008, Abe's of Maine is NOT shipping the MK II K200D and lens kit despite what their website states. I got the 19541 box from them with the old lens but shipping order shows I ordered the MK II. Also, the camera and lens boxes come with a "weathered" look and their packing is atrocious. Greetings, by the way. I would have liked to start out my first post as a Pentax owner on a positive note but it is not to be.

A quick check of Reseller Ratings told me not to buy from Abe's of Maine.

Alright thanks, then I guess that I will order from Amazon.

I'm about to sell my Fuji to someone and once I get the funds I will buy a K200D from Amazon.

P.S. Is there anything I can do if I receive the 18-55 mk1 lens instead of the mk2.
You mean there are different kits w/ different lenses? What is the difference between mk1 and mk2?

Just discovered this thread and congrats to OP on your new purchase, hope you enjoy the K200d as much as I do

I'm also moving to DSLR from a Fuji megazoom (S700) recently. Can't say much about the MK 2 kit lens as I fell for the k200d + 18-250mm combo, hopefully I won't be kicking myself later for not getting the new kit lens.

Actually, they are rated pretty highly on RR when compared to big chains like Circuit City. Also, the first page of reviews are pretty much filled with generic one line positives. It's not until you start moving back through the reviews that you get an idea of how bad this company is. Another thing is, I trusted a certain very popular digital photography review site's selection of sponsors. I made a mistake or two and color me educated.
