Unfortunately it won't ship until 20th July, so you'll have to wait for the August Single In Challenge.
I'm going wide for July.

Like scary fast. Sometimes I order one evening and it arrives to Adelaide next day.

I bought the Battery Grip from CR Kennedy, and the Large KP grip was definitely included.
In contrast to others, I found the battery grip absolutely transformed the ergonomics of the KP with large lenses (I often use the DFA150-450 with it).
Take it off when travelling with a bag of Limited primes and you can have the best of both worlds.

As it turns out, I was not going to get my pre-order any earlier than the rest :(

So I have cancelled my original pre-order an re-ordered at the discounted price :cool:

It's pretty obvious in the case of the DFA15-30, DFA24-70 and DFA70-210.
I'm not sure there is any requirement for Ricoh to state it publicly. Does any other company disclose that sort of collaboration?

24, 35, 50, 85, 135 would be the ideal progression of DFA* series primes IMHO.

As to what we will get next, only time will tell.

I just don't have the dedication or the skills to do justice to such a major investment.
Reality bites every now and then....

As it turns out, I emailed Pentax Australia and was dismayed to hear that they are not expecting their first shipment until 20th July.
As such I have asked for my pre-order to be cancelled, so I can re-order it with the current 15% discount voucher :)

So no DFA*85 in July I'm afraid. I can only hope it arrives in time for my birthday on the 22nd. Then bring on August!

As such, my thoughts are now turning to other lenses; I'm happy to take requests. The more interesting options include:
K 15/3.5
K 30/2.8
Lomography Lomogon 32/2.5 Art (probably the front runner)
K 85/1.8
F 85/2.8 Soft
K135/2.5 on full frame (done on APS-C years ago)
DA* 300/4.0 on full frame (done on APS-C years ago)

I'm not going to consider 645 lenses because I'm planning to sell out of that whole system.

I'm planning to participate with the DFA* 85/1.4

It's actually now looking unlikely to arrive before 1st July, but I'll weigh in ASAP. In the meantime, I'll use one of my other 85mm lenses (or all of them if that's OK ;)).

All is forgiven Robbie.

For what it's worth, rather than escalating to all-out war, a report to the Moderation Team is probably a better approach to such border incursions; a diplomatic solution is nearly always preferable ;)

My other option would be the F 85/2.8 Soft, which would certainly be a stark contrast when the DFA* arrives ;)

If it arrives in time! I haven't heard anything from CR Kennedy yet.

I might have to open with my K 85/1.8 (I have already Singled my FA* 85/1.4)....

That is embarrassing, and concerning. It might be time for fewer warnings and more infractions.

Consider that a warning ;)
