    Is your pricing here Canadian or US?

    Excellent. I've used both in F-mount.

    I've heard the quality is great. I've only seen the 100 Makro and the construction is excellent. I think most people consider these up-grades from the regular prime Nikon and Pentax lenses.

    Yes, I'm in Canada so the prices are Canadian dollars.

    Pentax K mount seems like a slightly odd choice, but that may just be a North American bias where the only real Pentax sales in the last 20 years have been K1000's and clones to first-time photography students. I wonder if Pentax has other more sophisticated K-mount cameras they sell in Japan only?

    No/not many LX's in the US, then?

    No- the LX was never a hot seller here.

    This is quite good news for pentaxians. I know this is a silver based forum, but I was wondering how these lenses would fare on the newer digital pentax bodies? Seems like some K and KA mount pentax 35mm lenses work okay on digital bodies, but some produce CA.
