Just thought I would let anyone know who has followed this thread that I LOVE my new K5IIs. I don't see me upgrading for a long time. Only one question for others who own this camera...My pictures files are so large when I download them that I can't email or burn them to a disk...any suggestions?

Flash drives. I put my pictures on a flash drive to pass around to family & friends. I buy up a bunch when Target or Walmart puts a particular brand/size on clearance. That usually happens after Christmas when the "Special Purchase" SKUs for the Black Friday & holiday season are still hanging around the sales floor.

If you shoot raw+JPEG the jpegs should be manageable, or you can always resize them after download. And a lot of email programs actually ask what size you want when you attach them. Also you can adjust the JPEG file size in camera.

Resize the jpg down to around 1200X800 and it will be small enough. If you email etc. you can also knock the quality down to around 85% which will further reduce the file size. Chances are people aren't viewing them full size anyway, just to fit the monitor.
