Just got me a K10D, in mint condition, with battery grip .. for a steal. (thanks Mike) I cant describe what an incredibly awesome piece of kit this old CCD powered beast is. I got this to stamp out my cravings for a Leica M8, and something like 1/20th of the price .. and it takes my film lenses with no issue. No idea what Im doing with it yet, so slapped on the 50mm 1.7 from my Super-A, and sort of figured out how the manual lens setup works. Sort of. Bad light, indoors at night, ISO 400, guessing my way through before I read the manual. Not a sharp image .. but still .. what lovely 3D pop, looks to me like a film shot. Nice.

Welcome to the club. I know what you mean about the Leica craving -- I'm a fellow sufferer. I get the feeling that you're a shooter who really knows what he's doing, and I'm looking forward to seeing your stuff with the K10D.

Welcome to The Cult!

We really need to figure out some sort of initiation ceremony. Maybe a secret handshake?

Maybe. It's just that my arms aren't long enough.

Welcome. You have done extremely well for not having read the manual. Imagine how impressed you will be when you really learn how to drive it. It didn't take you long to see why we all adore our K10Ds.

I wonder if that phrase has ever been uttered in the history of the interwebz...
Never, I would say. There's nobody else who can put a string of words together like our Dartmoor Dave.

I originally wrote here, thinking it was funny:

Me red lotta books at skool. Me lurn riting gud.

But it isn't funny. In my volunteering I work with people with learning disabilities and brain damage, and I should have known better than to post such insensitive garbage.

People in this forum (and this thread in particular) are extremely nice and write very, very well. Quite different from some music forums I used to haunt... you'd know if one of their member showed up in here, they'd say something like "I think your cool and I like you're photos!"...
