Hm, I wonder if all of europe is getting dumped right now. We've gotten about a metre of snow over just the last day or so, and back in tromsų, I've been hearing that there's so much new snow that EVERYTHING is avalanching, including the stuff that usually isn't steep enough.
That sounds awful... We have just 10-20 cm down here, and around -10C. That's more than enough winter for me!

That's perilously close to engaging with the real world... is that allowed intros thread.?I mean, it wouldn't be on topic (heaven forbid) but it would be on "a topic". Is it the original topic or all topics that aren't allowed here? I'm so confused.

And don't call me surely.
Would you prefer "surly"?

Before noon, it would be better fit.

After all what's an "h" and an "e" among friends.

Just don't call me late for dinner.

I used to be like that; then I extended my hours.

Here we have 11°C. Today there are clouds, but for Christmass day it was all suny. Still I agree it start to be a bit cold

But we can see the moutains being full of snow ! Ski season started !

I live in Antibes, near Nice in France...

I don't need no stinking K-3. I already have a wonder camera. It's called a K5II. Call me impressed! This is a very nice camera. Maybe it's the new lenses? Fast, sharp AF, in the freaking dark even? It does feel a bit heavier to me though. My arms are getting pretty tired and I've only been playing with it a little. I like the prime, but I think after playing with them both I actually like the 18-135 a bit more. This copy is nice. Very sharp, dead on focus and it's nice and quiet. You know it's funny but when I am using them I don't even notice how much louder the K-30's are. Not until I pick this one up and compare. K5II is so quiet and fast. It's a very different experience using it...
Haha, nobody acknowledged your posts. Not one single response. See what you get for holding out on us?! ! DENIED!




J/K. Congrats on the new stuff and I like your strap! I almost got the K5IIs but cancelled the order in favor of something else (see sig). I did get the 50 1.8. It's great for a cheap plastic lens. No complaints about it. Now, go take some pics with your new toys and start posting them up!

Also, how long till we see the K5II with some lipstick on it?

Wow. I leave for one evening, and you guys are talking about steak?
Is there anything better?

A nice juicy steak, grilled to perfection, baked potato, some green beans, and a very frosty glass of your favorite adult malted beverage.

The perfect meal.

Not a problem. It is near the Yellowstone super volcano. When she blows it will be free crispy bacon raining down on everybody.

:P

Lipstick? Uh, soon. If I decide to keep it I'm going to bling it all up just to drive you guys crazy, lol. But believe it or not I'm actually not sure I'm keeping it. You know it's a great camera and there's a lot to love about it, but yesterday's playtime left my arms and my hands really sore. For some reason the locations of some of the buttons on the K5II, the mold of the grip, it is just a bit tough on my hands and arms. In terms of what it can do I really like it, but in terms of the ergonomics thing it may not be the best camera for me. It might be a bit too big for me. I feel like a little kid pianist trying to play a Baby Grand. It's like I can barely stretch to feel the keyboard.

My hands are very, very small and arthritic besides. I have tendon and arthritis issues because of the autoimmune thing. Something about the design of the K5II is just making my hands ache after use and I can feel it in my arms and shoulders too after. I don't think it's that much heavier than the K-30's but it sure feels a lot different to me. I can definitely feel the weight of it when I use it. I'm going to give it a week or two and see but if I can't get used to it and it's going to bother me like this using it all the time I may just flip it with the 18-55WR I have, get my $$$ back, and keep the lenses I got with. That was the main reason I went for it. The K5II was just a bonus really. I really wanted that 18-135WR and the DA 50 and it was too good of a deal I thought to pass it up.

I kind of hate to give it up though. Less than 2100 clicks? It's practically brand new and it looks it too. The guy that had it? He must have really babied it. There's not a mark on it that I can see. It still looks like it just came out of the factory...

When I was like 4 my babysitter she accidentally left some old cans of eggnog in a very hot place during the summer and they just exploded this vile thick rotten sulfuric smelling sludge all over the place. I have never forgotten that. It was just UGH.
