Perhaps the phrase "reasonably priced" or even " economical" should have been included in my original post

K5 identity; value for money, light weight, functional, wr, ergonomic, honest. I think for the k5 image I'd prefer wr prime with zero in lens motor - screw drive; Easy to use, almost indestructible, timeless, light weight, affordable, can be passed on for generations. Keep the sdm II for wr zoom as they are heavy anyway. And people would use zoom for video too in case ko 2 is wr.

I think Pentax is about pancakes, making them wr and screw driven makes plenty sense. Not only this is their competitive advantage, those new to Pentax end up with wr primes would upgrade to their flagship wr dslr soon.

FA limiteds with WR and quickshift. No sdm no DC needed. That would be hard to resist.

Well, its compact enough for me. And the IQ seems a step up from the DA limiteds.

Had a chance to think about this thread today - I was attending the annual community Mudrally and pighunt competition today - yes together but not in the same venue and just got a bit close to the action with my K20D with 50-200 attached and gear bag over my shoulder - no photo to share but I was covered head to toe with mud splatters. Photo of incoming splatter attached.



Continued making images for two hours with muddy equipment - another reason for using a lens hood. Was pretty confident everything was still in good condition with no capillary action seepage into the internals happening.







Just finished two hours of cleaning. Wiping down the camera was the easy part. Guess what colour the mud on the camera was.

How did the mud spray get in front of the 4WD in the last shot? Was it running backwards? Or is that just the result of running with no mudguards?

Hi Dan,
There is a small jump and the trucks hit the back of it pretty hard while still axle deep in mud and push a bit of a wave ahead of it over the crown and the trucks slow a little while spinning their wheels as they come over. Combination of push and spin. Thank you for your interest.

Umm...brown?. Nice shots, chasing pigs with a truck could be fun.

Which is great but for me a couple in the 15-35 range would be far more useful the 55 if the closest to an FL I use regularly

No - the first edition- the mud was sloppy so it didn't flow in but sat and turned to lumps and then I brushed and wiped off with warm soapy water later that night.
