RE Solid State Drives.

They are a great idea and would help quite a lot but they wear out pretty quickly so you'd want to be backing them up regularly.
SSD wear out a after longer time than you might think. And if you think read-writes might be an issue just get a OCZ MAX input-outputs edition. SSDs are unbelieveable when you first use them. You wonder how you ever went without that.

By the way I still use tradiional drives in RAID for photos. The speed is not a problem as HDD bandwidth is still 50+mb a second on most PCs.

The real advantage of ssd's are the access times. The speeds of any modern ssd should be enough for anyone.

I thought I'd enlighten this more or less theoretical thread with something that really matters to many users and some might have missed it... it does not really belong to this topic, but you may want to know that a solution has been found for the K-5 / AF540FGZ overexposure issue.
Follow this thread and the embedded link for pictures Re: P-TTL on K5: Pentax SLR Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review
I have tested it myself and my combo now works as expected (before the fix I experienced up to +2 EV overexposure with bounce flash)
Kind Regards

I hear that you can trade in your old spotmatic for a new FF. You only pay for shipping.
