Things to buy sooner rather than later (since the K-1 is official)

Quality full frame lenses that have been in somewhat of a price slide should start heading back up, especially once the K-1 actually starts shipping. So regardless of whether you see a K-1 (at some point) in your future or you simply want these to use on your APS-C Pentax... here are a few items that are probably at rock bottom prices right now:

Once people realize that the HD 1.4x TC is not full frame capable, demand will pick-up for the F 1.7x TC. It wasn't that long ago that these were selling for $349-400 and I think we will see them heading that direction again soon.
Pentax-F 1.7x TeleConverter

Pentax-F 17-28mm f3.5-4.5 Fish-Eye

SMC K 28mm f3.5 Shift lens

"Stack of Primes" Pentax-A 35-105mm f3.5

It also depends upon what the prices will be on the new Limiteds that are in production, but it is possible that the current Limiteds will see a healthy bump in the used market, particularly the Silver models and the Made in Japan models.

I would expect more competition for used Zeiss glass in the Pentax mount also.

Feel free to add others that you think may be going up.
