Hi Stu

Do you think it will it come supplied with one of those new-fangled light-proof black capes to assisting when focussing on subjects in bright daylight ?

Best regards
Fox Talbot
They do come with a cape Fox, but Pentax has done their research. It's no longer Black.

It's now made entirely of solar cells, so you don't even need to pack any batteries.
Unless you plan on doing Night Photography, when they suggest using a Deep Cycle boat battery.

I like the large flat spaces they leave for the pros to drum up sponsorship advertising with. A little logo here a little logo there and the owners of these can earn money just by being seen out and about with them. And for those not wanting to bow to corporate sponsorships custom racing stripes or flames can really put a personal stamp of ownership on it.

Nice... but I think I'll wait for the K21DS Super, with the massive improvement of slightly different polish and a slightly more oiled latch.

Hi Geoff

Bearing in mind what you said about:
When I use it I'll get all the chicks
That's entirely possible, because what Stu omitted to mention is that at night-time, his extraordinary 'contraption' doubles-up as a makeshift 'hen-house' !!! Just imagine all those fresh eggs on tap every me, it's no 'yoking' matter !
