K-7 / fz-20 / p30

I just want to share a couple of side by side shots of old and new cameras. From left to right, the Panasonic FZ20, the Pentax F30 with Pentax A-35-70mm, the Pentax K-7 with Voigtlander Nokton 58mm.

I bought my FZ20 (ultra-zoom P&S with 12 time optical zoom) in 2005 and I have enjoyed it. The F30 is an older 35mm SLR. I used it in the 1990s with great interest: it was my first SLR experience and I got some nice B&W shots then. The K-7 is my new toy: a great camera, very loveable.

The K-7 is slightly larger than the FZ20, but heavier. The photos were taken with an Oly mu790sw.

Enjoy....

Nice camera porn! Hope you enjoy your K-7 while you're at it, BTW

Camera porn is the best porn, if I could keep a single camera around for more than a few months I could probably do a shot like this but I've been constantly cycling cameras by selling and buying

Canon SX200is
then Kx
then Kx+S90
then Kx+S90+K7
then Kx+K7
then K7 with some nice lenses
then K7 with kit lenses
then K7 with a [temporary] Sony HDR XR150 video camera

and now I'm trying to focus on video a little more, I'm reluctant to sell my K7 because I love the weather sealing so much but hopefully over the next few months I can switch my set up to

Sony FX7+Nikon D3100

To keep a singe digital camera since 2005 is obviously a very foreign idea to me

Future retro: I did not feature my Oly C700 (10 times optical zoom) purchased in 2001 that is still working and that I use occasionally....
