Mixed Emotions.

Today whilst down at the equestrian centre taking photos of the show jumping training rounds, my faithful K5 (classic) started
having convulsions and ended up in a bad way. The shutter shut down and wouldn't work properly, sometimes it would and sometimes it wouldn't,
even when focused. Swapped cards, turned off and on, popped the battery and tried different modes, all to no avail. Tomorrow I'm supposed to
be taking photos of the Polo cross in Perth, West Aus, which is part of the Australia day celebrations, not happy Jan. BUT, on the up side it has forced
my hand, I'm now the proud owner of the Pentax K3. Fortunately I was able to get my hands on one. First impressions?..... sweet, definitely an improvement.
Rattled a few shots off and had a bit of a play around before updating firmware. I'm going to enjoy the K3. Naturally I'll have to tweak it a little to suit me and
my tastes. I think the focus is a little sensitive (single point) as some times had trouble locking focus on flower buds and green fruit on the tree but It could just
be me, I'll know more tomorrow. Hopefully be able to post a half decent pic at least.


NB. Using DA* 50-135 F2.8
