Adobe - DNG Codec : For Windows : Adobe DNG Codec 2.0

This works for me, I can see Explorer thumbnails for my pentax k-5 iis dng files.
Thanks! I was happy to find a codec for the PEF format - now I can't use it. :P

So far I'm happy with my K-5 with 18-135 lens. Now I'd like to add DA 55-300, but cannot find a good price from Australian online stores. I'm thinking to buy it from DWI ($349) on ebay, or B&H online. Any suggestions will be much appreciated!
I recently used DWI to purchase a Sigma 150-800 and had no problems and they promptly answered a couple or email queries I had .

Oops, that is a Sigma 150-500 although 800 would have been nice for birding.

Wouldn't it just! I'd hate to think what it would weigh, though!

I just have to say that the resolution from this thing is *stunning*.
I need to pick through over 1100 shots taken today at the Gorgeous Festival in McLaren Vale and I'll share some with y'all.

Finally got hold of my Pentax K-5 II.s today and it was the only one Camera Electrics had in stock. Checked it out when I got home, shutter count = 1 and manufactured 10/12/2012 so pretty much brand new. Going to the new Perth Entertainment Centre by invite on Monday night to get shots before the public mar the place. Should give me an indication on how good it works in low light.

I hope you're happy with it! I'm over the moon with mine. At least - I wish I could be! What awesome photos they would be...

Congratulations. For the benefit of would be buyers in Perth, I recently bought a K5iis from Leederville cameras. They had another nine available!
