The prize is quite cheap I think, becasue the swedish Krona is very very weak comparing to the dollar or Euro or whatever these days

The only "problem" with the DA 16-45 is that it is not a * lens, otherwise it's very sharp and has a great range. I prever it above the DA 18-55. That lens is still worth 200-250 euros on the second hand market.

Lots of people here on the forums seem to love the 16-45; odds are it's pretty good. I find it pretty good, myself.

Hello!
The 16-45 seems like a very nice lens and I really regret that I didn't bought that one instead of the standard 18-55.

You got super pricing there for those items. In Finland those would cost way over 1k euros. Actually something like 2k. I would not wait any longer.

Done! I'm now a owner of a brand new k20d

Well, let me put it this way.

In other stores I would have been pay nearly 1900$/ 1600 for all this.

But we made a deal, and after a hard disscution...well here we are

As i said. The swedish-krona is very weak these days and this price is indeed very good for be in a swedish store. (sweden is expensive normally, even with a strong swedish-krona)

What can I say?.....Im happy, that's it!

Grattis! The K20D + 16-45 is 9490:-/887 at cyberphoto.se who are usually cheaper than most brick-and-mortar stores, and with all that extra stuff you got beside that I would say you got a great deal, especially for Sweden. Enjoy it.
