Nothing wrong with that selection, although I take it you'll be getting a lens to cover the wider angles too (18-55/16-45/16-50 depending on budget)?

Don't forget to get a spare battery and a large-ish capacity memory card while you're at it, I think they're probably the two most vital accessories.

The K10 & K20 batteries are a straight swap so no worries there.

Good news, have fun shopping, but don't limit your purchases to the cheapest supplier. After sales service counts for a lot, especially when/if you have a problem.

You'll get free postage to a UK address from www.srsmicrosystems.co.uk. Call them, ask for Chris, and tell him you are a PU member with loads of cash to spend.

I would wait and see what Thursday brings.

Don't forget you also get 2 years warranty with SRS though.

Having seen your photographs I do wonder why you want a 50-300 lens I'd have thought you'd get much more creative use from a wide angle lens. I'm assuming you plan to get the kit lens.

I also have used SRS and have nothing but praise for them. One of the best suppliers I have used regardless of what I'm buying.
