Congrats Hitanshu! Happy clicking..

I have a Pentax K100D with the 18-55 kit lens and a 70-300 mm Tamron. I'm looking for a prime/macro Lens for the same.

Amazon prices seem too steep. Any other online shop in the US ?

What??? I bought my D40 more then a year back for 17 in heera panna. How can it possible cost more now?

No discussions about the new Canon 7D. It seems like the 18 MP sensor on a cropped body has put many off.
Canon unveils EOS 7D high-end digital SLR: Digital Photography Review

Headline Features:
18 Megapixel
8 FPS continuous shooting
All new 63 zone metering sensor
Dual Digic IV
All new 19 point focussing system, all cross types.

That's a huge one. Congrats! How much did it cost you, what lenses did you get?
Was pretty pricey - 1.3lacs from pixetra. Right now I'm out of money but want to get a 24-70 f/2.8L soon. Then it would be a 70-200 f/2.8L IS. But that can wait. Right now all I have are a 17-40 f/4L, 85 f/1.8 and 100 f/2.8 macro.

You never know when the so-called 'waste' can be put to great use
