Grama
Lens: DA SMC 35mm Limited f2.8 Macro Camera: K-5 Photo Location: New Mexico ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/1500s Aperture: F4.5 
Posted By: WileyB, 12-05-2021, 10:26 PM

I have a K-5 that I love, and take with me most of the time when my intention is to take pictures.
I don't think I'd have a need for more megapixels, though without having tried them on for size I can't say for sure!

But with the general lack of fast DA primes, it would be really nice to have a K-70 some nights if it could offer an extra stop or two in ISO.
And for the kinds of awkward angles and perspectives I really enjoy in close-up photography, a flippy screen would be incredibly useful. I can't very well hold the K-5 far over my head and correctly frame/level a shot, and neither is it easy to frame a low shot near the ground.

Happy holidays everyone, and thank you Adam for this season's giveaways :-)
