More Silver KP Pron

I had not planned to buy a KP since I already have a K-1 and far too many film cameras to reasonably justify - yet - a member made this silver example available and my plans . . . changed. Such is life. I won't be selling the DA Limiteds after all.

I'll call the KP and DA's my backup and travel kit and we'll leave it at that. Alas, much of the film gear will appear in the Marketplace. I think I have actually found the limit of gear acquisition behavioral pathology. This is the sell part of Buy/Try/Sell.

My KP and a possible progenitor . . . (for the uninitiated, the old one is an AP).




KP with a classic lens in new clothing . . .




KP with the obligatory Forum beauty shot lens . . .



Please forgive the exposure errors - these are quick and dirty - we have twin grandbaby baptisms tomorrow so I'm just gunning and running.

More to come . . . . .

Many of us have been down that slope, and it's slippery.
She's a beauty!
Now I'm jonesing even more for a silver seventy for my KP.

You won't be sorry. It gives the 77 a run for the money.

I don't generally care that much how a camera looks (I'm talking to you F2) but I must say the designers hit a home run with the KP.

That's a sweet set up. The 50 f1.2 with the chrome finish really is a beautiful piece of glass.
