Hi Topsy, are you not better just ordering via digitec? I have always used them when buying Pentax gear here in Switzerland.

Sure i suspect that they have changed this quite recently as almost all reports i had read had complained that the XS did not have this feature.

New bag just arrived so here are a few pictures... as mentioned previously I ordered the Timbuk2 Snoop XS.

It actually fits more than expected, easy taking the K5+ DA35 combo with DA15 and DA70, can even fit in the AF540 which I did not expect.... I expect I could also fit my standard zoom kit (K5+16-50+50-135+AF540) although have not yet tried.
Overall looks great, feels like great quality. Contrary to some of the reports and comments I have seen on the internet the XS does actually have the zip close inner interior bag as you can see in the photos.
I also added the Deluxe strap pad, original does not look bad actually but the deluxe is a little wider so I expect more comfortable.
Thanks again for all your comments and suggestions.

I can definitely recommend the Da15 as almost everyone else on the forum... it did take me a few outings to get used to it, however now it is probably my most used of the 15/35/70 trio.

K30 and long lens for Kruger National Park

While I have never been to Kruger Park or South Africa I was on Safari in Tanzania back in 2010 where the kit 18-55 and 55-300 served me very well together with my K20D... only had a couple of occasions where I wished for something longer, that said the 55-300 is very good and you can get a sharp shot with quite some cropping if required.

Hi All,

I currently have reworked my setup to carry as standard:
K5 + DA15 + DA35 + DA70 (one of the 3 fixed to camera)

I am looking for the perfect bag to fit this combo... I do have other bags but are either over/undersized for this task.... any good suggestions..., anyone with the same walkaround setup with the perfect solution?

I have and would recommend an iMac, great for photography in my view... I have the 27" which I would recommend which I have upgraded with 16gb ram (dont pay apple for the upgrade, much cheaper to do yourself as is plug & play), can run windows if needed (which I don't).... is also completely silent with fantastic design.

Lenses for Venice

I was in venice also last year and took my K20+16-50+50-135+AF540 and worked perfect.... based on your sig I would take the K30+17-50+50-135... take or leave the flash based on your shooting style but it will be useful if you want to take nighttime portraits on the many bridges :).. 30 1.4 is good in low light but I think that the depth of field will cause you issues shooting wide open as the background will so so oof that you could be anywhere in the world....
you dont mention in your sig but I could also suggest a tripod if available to you.

I have both the 50-135 and 70... I find the 50-135 to be spectacular and have got many great shots, truly excellent for portraits so I am sure you will be very happy with it... Its only downside its its relative size compared to the DA70 which means the 50-135 more often than not gets left at home... I am now living with the 15-35-70 combo which I love and strongly considering offloading the zooms (16-50 & 50-135), image quality of the 50-135 is equal to the DA70 in my eyes although at the moment I actually find the DA70 more practical from a size perspective (helps when you perfect quick lens changes when the need arises).

Welcome Lars,
I am also in Switzerland (Basel), from Edinburgh, Scotland originally.
Enjoy your camera, advantage of WR is you can feel a bit more comfortable taking it skiing or other mountain activities!

Item for Sale
Pentax K-01 (Black) + DA 40 XS

Asking Price
395 EUR 360 EUR

Item Location
Basel (Switzerland)

Item Description
I have just received my Pentax K-01 + DA 40 XS (Black), as there was nowhere closeby where I could try it out before hand I just went ahead and bought one.... its not for me I think, I decided that i missed the viewfinder too much and my money would be better placed in a lens for the K5. Lens is tiny although I will likely invest the money from the sale in a DA 40 limited(less tiny but helps complete my limited lineup)

As I was unsure if I would keep it I never actually fired the shutter, just played for a few minutes and checked out the focus peeking (cool feature that I wish I had on my K5), end result is that I did not think I would get much use of it so want to sell it on.

Therefore, camera is New in Box... Camera only out of box for a few minutes while I tried it out.

I can upload photos later today.
