Just a thought to take to heart.

The next generation in the Pentax DSLR line up,

Will not do your laundry.

It will not fold your clothes.

Nor can it do fluff and fold.

What it can do is, move forward well beyond the competition with no vertical wrinkles and no banding in your fluff and folded high end expensive blue jeans.

Please respect that I have to be "very delicate" in doing this laundry here.

When it comes to whites they are very pure clean and true, especially when my daughter is on the balance beam.

Having done my laundry over the past few months with several prime specimens of the CN railroad and do not forget the O's in my hands to compare what went through the wash with the P in the mix.

When the laundry came out of the dryer,

The P and O had a strong battle for the top of the laundry pile. The C and N still had a bit of embedded dirt in the weave.

When my daughter preformed on the balance beam, she had to run really quick to take a very satisfied P.

So mom put the very clean P on top of the laundry pile.

Now that my daughter is 14 we progress well beyond the twean's.

Something wonderful yet practical reaches our hands. We move beyond the cradle and move towards her success in life.

Do not expect it to do your laundry, expect it to do what is supposed to do, photograph with the most "excellence" of available technology and beyond.


Read between the lines,

Cool seems a lot of what has already been talked about. She also dropped a hint about not jumping on purchasing a lens..I believe the thread about the Tamron 70-200 f/2.8

I talked to a local photographer today in my area that has seen the light. Can't wait to play with it. Oh so much fun

Hmm... :ugh:

Does Google translation work on what Wendy wrote? :ugh:

Is O regarded as the top of the laundry pile over C & N? I thought O still does not quite match C & N at the top, no?

I never thought that it could do the laundry Wendy, although your 14 year old daughter should just about be old enough to. If she needs a raise in her allowance

I'm really looking forward to seeing both Ben's and your photographs when your allowed to post them.

I'll most likely demo one the day they hit the stores shelves here, and probably see what it can do against 2 or 3 other brands.

Did you catch the popphoto article about the E-3 and telephoto lenses? Pretty impressive, if you ask me. And it does claim to have the fastest AF system, IIRC.

well

Thank you Wendy. There should be enough clean clothes here for everyone for about another 10 days. Then you and perhaps others can do a more complete load.

Most enlightening... Unfortunately I'll have to stick with 'dirty clothes' for a bit longer, but am happy to hear things might tunble the right direction..
Hope this will keep the criticasters satisfied for a bit

linen and not shrinking them deadly when they are dark.

I don't think that WendyB has any bearing on that matter... She does laundry, not foundry...

I would've though her daughter would be 20 instead of 14?

edit. oh wait, nvm. 14 as in 14MP, not K14D. Trying to read between the lines is too confusing!

High speed laundry? 3MP, faster fps? Perhaps somethign to do with sensitivity? ISO 50...

Sensor cleaning.

Focus assist beam.

Reference to another camera. Daughter is one camera, mother is another camera.

It means 2 cameras. One 14 megapixel (daughter) and the mother well beyond 14MP.

Built in radio triggers or built in grip in the greater than 14MP camera. Or maybe, a new lens with click stops in the zoom ring. That's practical.

Meaning her success as a professional. A full fledged professional body.

I recall a post here speculating on the possibility of higher fps with an attached grip and also noticed the N*kon D300 has higher FPS with attached battery pack.....hmmmm.

I am just wondering if the "preformed" on the balance beam is an intentional typo or not. Perhaps we are looking at a system of Predictive focussing?
