I shoot semi-professionally, currently using Canon 60D, the plan is to go full-frame next year (or later, still hope for a first Canon FF with flip-out screen).

I guess that would be true if you didn't know what it was for or how to use it correctly. Or maybe even wanted it without any intent to actually use it for its purpose.

Erm. It's not a real lens. It's photoshopped. Isn't it?

It wouldn't have been photoshopped except to "make fun" of the actual lenses which are large.

Except a lens that long with that many segments for that reach of telephoto would have horrible aberration. That was my first thought. My second was that it doesn't matter since people will buy expensive lenses without knowing how they work. Which is sad because they could give the money to me and I would buy smaller and cheaper lenses and get drunk and STILL end up with better photography.

That's my rational behind posting the most ridiculous lens I could find.

I just ordered me a Pentax K30.

Reviews are good and it comes with two lenses.

not until after I have tested the camera. But they are well fed and make a lot of noises.

Noises are good. Shows that they are healthy and alive.

DAL 18-55mm AL & 50-200mm

I think/hope those two:
http://www.ricoh-imaging.de/de/k-bajonett/technische-details/smc-DA-18-55-mm-3.5-5.6-AL-WR.html
http://www.ricoh-imaging.de/de/k-bajonett/technische-details/smc-DA-50-200-mm-4-5.6-ED-WR.html

the first one was described as not great but good enough and is the standard lens for the K-30.
The second one is either the -WR or not. WR would be better - water resitant...

I would have posted the english links - but their english website sucks.

Some day we'll read about a guy named Üter and how it wasn't just something he wrote to by funny.

I don't have any humor at all and I never try to make any jokes at all. That childish behaviour is reserved for lesser people from across the sea.

so the K-30 arrived an hour ago.

Still loading the battery. Camera fits well into my hands, did 4 snaps with automatic mode. Not too shabby. Handbook has 338 pages....

Next step:
Firmware update
Then:
more handbook reading

Oh, got the DAL lenses. Plastic lens mount, you have to turn of autofocus for manual focus (a nice switch makes that quick and easy) and not WR.

I can live with that.
