Just bought the storm trooper K2000... Pics added...

Pics added in reply...

Been looking for another body (either a back-up to K200D or K7) and just saw the white K2000 on KEH for a good price. Can't decide if it looks good or ugly, but I guess I will find out next week. Still want the K7, just not ready to drop the money on it yet! My latest thought was a K2000 with split image screen for use with my M lenses. Then I saw this, so we'll see how it goes...

Anyone else have the storm trooper addition?

If it was that double kit lens they had on there, that was an awesome price! Nevermind EX condition from them is practically mint in box. I am getting the K-x white, hoping it comes in the next week before I leave for a week in Toronto (not holding my breath though sadly).

Man I love the look of the white. I wish I could've gotten my K20D in white.

Let us know how you like it and take some pictures of you and others holding it!

I have a white one preordered, but I am worried about it tinting in the future or needing some kind of cleaning. Have you heard anything about that?

Yes, it was the double lens kit. Really didn't need the 18-55 and 50-200, but if they are white like the body, I will keep them. Price seemed very good, especially considering it is the white body.

I will update once I receive everything.

Well, it just arrived. Came in the original box with all accessories - nice... I am a box junkie, I don't like buying camera gear without the original box.

First impressions are very high. Autofocus seems noticeable faster than the K200D. Not sure if that is a compliment for the KM or a knock on the K200D. My guess is the later. The white is a very nice finish - glossy, but not 'slick'. I need to get my hands on some lens hoods. I suppose I could steal the hood from my DA 50-200, but I still need to source one for the 18-55.

I will try to get some pics up soon.

Pics...

Just some quick and dirty pics. White balance and exposure is a mess, but you get the point... I was excited to try out some lenses.

K2000 with DA21... Not sure if the DA21 is going to stay around as I really want the DA15...



K2000 with the M's... M28 F3.5, M50 F1.7, M135 F3.5...



K2000 with the kit lenses... minus the metal mounts and quick shift, they seem OK to me.

Nice! finally I see some pics of a white camera with other lenses. And I like the look with the limited and M series. Maybe I will go through with the white K-x. Red / Navy Blue don't seem like they would go as well with the green trim on the limiteds.

If you ever get a chance, have a photo taken with you holding it, or it on its strap at your side.

That is a great looking rig! Congratulations indeed.
More decisions to come include choice of straps: Black? White? Translucent?
Some things K-x users will no doubt wrestle with as well, though for the moment, I don't think many people offer suitable attractive matching blue, red or green neck straps.

I have a KM, bought in April...not white though...just the typical black edition. I would of liked to have bought a camouflage or 'army olive' green though, if Pentax made it for wildlife photography...blend in the environs.

The KM makes a nice body to accompany my K10D.
