Hi. Thanks for the answers above.
What do you think of K-x and pentax smc da* 50-135mm combination? Anyone tried that already? I heard a lot of good reviews about the lens and I am tempted to get one.
I like it. Alot. I will put it this way to start - typically you mount lenses to your camera body, but in this case (as I am sure it would be with any larger lenses) it is more like you are mounting the K-x to the 50-135!

I will also say that I love the 50-135 on the k20d/grip - it is very well balanced. But, on the Kx it has a different quality to the overall feel. Your left hand cradles the lens and body at the same time, and it feels just as balanced - this also bears most of the weight, leaving your right hand free to make camera adjustments when necessary. I think it balances very well, although great on the K20, on the K-x the weight feels more centered with your left hand under the lens and body. I think they make a great pair!
