My K10D is here. Photos inside!
Posted By: Asad_Masede, 12-06-2006, 03:38 AM

I won't say much in this thread, just that it's everything I read it was, but has a few livable quirks, I love it's smooth mirror return. Needless to say I'll post a write-up of the K10D very soon.

In the meantime, here are the pics:

I got a phone call from the shop where I had ordered my K10D from in the morning and I was on my way. They only had gotten two, one was mine and the other was another forum member's, Joseph D. Joseph got there some 20 minutes after me and here is him completely fixated on the K10D, wallet in hand, ready to grab the shiny black box!

Some food to celebrate, this was close and quick (relatively):

At the station on my way home:

Hmm... at first I thought she was being hassled by her boyfriend, then he said something about her being "under arrest" (apparently for shoplifting)... put handcuffs on her and off they go:

This was interesting too... and for those wondering, I think panning works fine with SR...

The K10D is not the only "new toy" here... my 'book is very dear to me :-D, it broke the bank but it's worth it I think.

The rest are here: Gallery Folder

Thanks for viewing and any comments welcome...

Great start of the day. I guess you are enjoying! And Joseph, probably still just as happy...

thank you for the pictorial!
Thanks Jonas... I am happy yes, satisfied that this camera will make life easier for me, especially in circumstances like the recent ice-hockey shoot.

Thanks for the trip Asad. Would be interested on a closer crop of the overhead sign in the "subway" or whatever (didn't have it in '75) - how did the SR work on that one.

There was only one descent dealer in Vancouver in those day - Astrad I think!!! or was that a computer?
Hi JC, will post the crop very soon!

Uh oh... better talk to my lawyer! :-P

Thanks Joseph, yeah we should do a Pentax Vancouver get-together sometime soon and actually go and shoot together instead of just sitting, now that we have our K10Ds.

I'll send you the full version of that image soon, I keep forgetting to do it.

Ha ha...thanks. No rush! My wife made the same comment about the "expecting" father look. Sheesh...can I help it? 2 months in geek-time is like 9 months, no?

As for the YVR Pentax get together. I am game for that! And like you said, more than just sitting around but go somewhere and take some nice photos. I would say with all the rain we'd be in tough but with our weather-sealed K10D's (and Jack's answer to a raincoat for our cameras) we'd be hard-pressed to give an excuse not to go anytime!

Let me know!
