Sorry guys, I worked until 6pm, had some drinks w/ a bunch of friends to celebrate the arrival of the new cameras and lens. Took quite some photos in a bar, I'll try to post some later, if I can stay awake for long enough.

Was with Frank earlier this evening and he took some fantastic shots in the dim bar. Wait for his images, it will blow you away!

So many Pentax K-5 users just could not wait to set their K-5s free (somewhat like the scene in the movie Alien where the eggs start hatching). Still playing with the K-5 menu... plenty of options to go through.



The new DA 35mm f/2.4... you'll be surprised just how light it weighs. That's the new Pentax Optio RZ10 in the background.


K-5 with FA 43mm f/1.9 for both shots...

Nice photos
But the K-5 is out of my price range so I can not afford it

Who celebrates getting their new camera by drinking instead of using it??

Had too much drinks, feel a bit dizzy now. Let's see if I can manage to post some good ones.

For a start, no more open box photos, just two quick snaps of the new gear I got today:

Here is the very first photo I took w/ the new camera and new DA35 lens, wide open at ISO800, a bit too excited, so better don't use this photos to make judgment on the new camera or lens:
