Congrats mate.
I'm sure it'll impress, certainly coming from a K100D.

Congratulations.....! You are in for a treat! I'd hate to have to work with that on my mind, but it will be all charged up when you get home!
Best Regards!

Understatement of the day, it will blow your socks off, that is if you wear any.

Got home from work. Did not charge battery so will have to charge it and have a play tomorrow.
Have scanned the manual. A lot more to this camera than my K100D Super.
I think I will have a lot of fun.

Finally got around to charging the battery and having a fiddle.
Only using at night at home.
So far only had a limited play.
AF streets ahead of the K100D.
Will report back when I have a "real world" try out.

I'll pray you got one with no issues.
