True Axl - however after just one month it seems a little early to be ditching such a great lense. I have to say I nearly did the same thing - but then it started to come into it's own as I find out how and when to use it. #3 on my list of most used lenses.

If you looked at the auction number you would see he is changing systems.

yes as mike said above I'm changing systems and going back to nikon . Will shortly be listing my pentax k-5 and 70mm 2.4 here. The k-5 is just over 4 weeks old and bought from srs with a build date of April , also the 70mm was bought from srs and is about 5 weeks old.

k-5 is fab but focusing accuracy is nowhere as good as the nikons I have owned previously . out of every 5 shots 2 are blurred whereas my previous nikon nails it every time, don't know wether any future firmware updates will improve this. A bit sad to switch as besides this the k-5 is pretty much perfect. the problem with the equivalent nikon is size. the d700 is quite a bit bigger and heavier so still undecided about my next camera.

ok come to my senses, too much money to lose in a short space of time hence withdrawing the sale. At the moment I don't think there's anything better as a complete package. I'll wait for the next Nikon release until then sticking with pentax

You never know, Pentax may even bring out a body with AF to compete with Canon and Nikon by then.

Stranger things have happened.
