Take a picture with an old relic, interesting concept.

I don't know about most but I have a K20D as my main camera with a K10D as backup. In reading through all the post over the past few days I can see already 50% are gonna be screaming I am moving over to (Insert Camera Brand Here).

Video in a DSLR, Live View plus any bells and whistles you want - how about adding in a toaster oven as well. Gotta eat while you are out taking pictures you know.

All this techno lust is amazing. I think I will load up the old K1000 and do something really wild --- shoot some film because I can and use a manul focus lens.

On the 20th I can' t wait for the crying to start.

Gotta go the sun is actually out and wow blue sky......

This is something I do at times. It disconnect me with all this modernity which I'm the first to beg for. But sometimes, going back to the roots calms my mind.
The noise of a mechanical shutter .. hmmmmm
Sinners! Imagine that...old cameras still working...

Seriously...I will NOT hold it against Pentax if they do decide to go with a beer dispenser

Well to be honest after getting my "dose" of K-7 rumors and updating the ol' blog yesterday, I used that crusty K10D. I'm thinking...new blog post of the K-7 today, with a bonus post of a pic or two on there. Cause that blog is whatever I feel like

From a few other posts of his I think ogl is hinting at a metal body, but another card carrying NDA user (I think) said you couldn't tell the difference between the feel of his idea of a "problem" on the body and the "feel" of a "non-problem" body. Then again, maybe I dreamed the whole conversation... It's a bit sketchy.
MZ-S had magnesium alloy body, but it didn't felt like magnesium alloy because it had a special outside layer and a mix with rubber outside of the metal body. It is a similar thing with the K-7, it doesn't feel like metal but still it is underneath.

No, it did not. The MZ-S has magnesium shell. It is only painted and it feels like metal. I have one right in front of me.
