Well, I'm back...

Hello,

My K20D & lenses arrived a couple days ago and I couldn't be happier... I sold the K10D and 77mm ltd last spring and regreted it ever since. When the time was right to return to the fold, I almost went with the 77mm ltd again but after reading glowing reports about the DA 35 & 70 ltd's, made the decision to get them both. The only problem I've encountered so far is when I raise the camera to my eye my elbows lock in the "point & shoot compose with the LCD" mode

John....

After a year of point & shoots, it's really nice to see the world through a veiwfinder again.

G'day John.

I know what you mean about P&Ses. I went from Pentax K2 to Canon Digital Ixus, and missed the viewfinder so much I bought a *istD when they first came out in Australia.

Since then, and subsequently moving to the K20D (I still use the *istD occasionally) I've settled back into taking satisfying photos again.

Cheers

Rob

Hello Chalion & Rob, I'm really enjoying the versatility of the K20D. It lets you take great pictures using the "P" mode, and allows a lot of room for creativity in the TAv & M modes. And its very nice to be able to hit the green button when you're not sure of the best settings.. I will be happy with this camera for a long time.... and the lenses are pretty sweet too....
John

Thanks Rense,
I am amazed by the pictures the K20D takes with the DA 32mm f2.8 Macro ltd. The 70mm F2.4 ltd is wonderful as well, but the 35mm just blows me away....
