Hey -- I'm new to the forum, just upgraded from a K10D to a K-3 this Christmas. The K10D was my first DSLR camera -- I knew absolutely nothing and learned on it. I know a little more than nothing now, though only a little.

I took a pancake lineup and the DA 50-200 on a RTW trip with me, all of which held up flawlessly in pretty extreme weather conditions and rough treatment. For walkaround travel photography, it was an awesome setup. I always struggled with fast movements and trying to get useable low-light photos, and metering was spotty at times, especially when trying to get outdoor portraits of my wife without everything looking washed out (though that was more due to the photographer and lack of external flash than it was the camera). She would patiently stand there for several minutes as I got out my filters and polarizer trying the capture scene behind her. I'd eventually figure it out, but it was often an adventure.

The K-3 has been a fantastic upgrade -- some things just work much easier; snapshots in low-light with the high ISO settings, auto-focus, metering is way more consistent. But I go back and look at my pics from the K10D, and love the way they look. When the lighting was good, I got some amazing photos, even as a hack with no idea what I was doing.

And of course, without that camera and the rave reviews it got, I'd probably never have gone to Pentax and would be another Canon/Nikon user with no idea about my amazing 43mm.

No going back now.

Thanks Oldhand, and fantastic colors in your photo!

Here's another K10/kit lens shot from recently (xposted):
A snap from New Years Eve - I had to grab our dog Tino (foreground) as he was about to try to cross this creek. Not sure he would have made it! (xposted)

Lots of old dairies in our area and some of the buildings are no longer used.
This was taken on K-10D and with a nifty fifty - the A.Schacht Ulm Exida-Travenar-A 50mm f2.8

Nice work, Tom. I love old buildings like that. And you have captured it at the right time of day.

Agreed! They were all great pics, but I love the lines of the shadows in the first one.

Thank you Paul!

Here's another one from Marrakech's Jemaa el-Fna square, with some pretty snakes:

K10D raw, Tokina AT-X f/2.5 90mm Macro, f/5.6, 1/250, ISO 100, processed in ACR and CS 6


The original crop is approximately 2500 pixels wide in full resolution. As I was travelling light, the 90mm Macro was the longest lens I took along, together with my old Sigma 1.4x converter that I rarely used. The shot is tack sharp, just short of identifying the smart phone.
