My wife has been after me to get a camera case as well (I've been using a small cooler, so I look like I belong to the Organ Transplant Team)

The extra sigma is a pentax k mount, manual push/pull focus, 4.5-5.6? nothing spectacular, but the 49mm filters fit on it. Looks like this.

For the gels.. there was a manual behind the padding of the hard case for a Pentax AF 400FTZ Flashgun, and the gels look like they'd fit it. They're in a plastic sleeve case that looks like a strip of condoms, it folds up and snaps shut.

Good call on the hood, looks like it to me. I'm also in need of a camera bag (currently using a small cooler), so I'm wondering what 'carry case' and 'more stuff' means.

Not getting much work done this aft :( :)

The name on the 200mm escapes me. I use it, because it's all I have, but it renders reds horribly and flat pictures. I couldn't find anything on the interwebs about it when I got it, it's a screwmount, I think I found out that they were made for department stores in Montreal or some such thing. It was free, so I didn't complain :).

Thanks for the feedback, I'm excited, new toys!!

Thanks again. My only AF lense is the Sigma 17-70 2.8-4.5. I have some other manual focus primes, 50 1.8, 28 2.8, 200 3.5 (crap), and the Pentax-A 35-105 3.5, so this set will fill most of the gaps.

Any guesses as to what's on the front of the 70-200?

The 70-200mm is far to good.... meaning it's a good lense? I would have thought it's average like the 28-80 since it's a common lense.
