Have you had time to think about how you will use it?
Not really. It is all still sinking in. A new K-1 has always been way out of reach for me. I normally buy used gear, a couple generations old. It will be cool to get to experience that "new camera smell" for a change

I'm still waiting for one off the little yellow K-01's to drop into my budget range. So I know how you feel about buying gear. Took me about 2 years to save up for a camera before. And when I finally got ready... I found out my parents didn't have the money for their mortgage, so I gave it to them. Started saving again. A year and a half later, my partner was fired, and I had to spend the money on some of his bills. The 3rd time around, I was saving up for the Pentax K-1, and it got bumped further out. And I started getting nervous about any other emergencies, didn't want to wait another 9 months. So I bought a Nikon D610 instead of risking it.

So pleased to see this going to someone who will, from the sounds of it, take great pleasure in that new smell feeling. Enjoy and I look forward to seeing your images in the future

Congrats! Enjoy it! I was 63 posts too early. So close, yet so far… I hope that smell bites you like Peter Parker's spider and turns you into a superphotographer!

It was quite a buzz when I saw that message. I don't think I took a breath for a minute.

This has been an active monsoon season, for sure. Our poor dogs were going nuts!
