Consider yourself forgiven. But don't let it happen again...

And it's still the most colourful cow I have ever seen.

Here's one from this afternoon with the Super Takumar 20mm. I do actually own other glass, but the Tak 20 is the one lens to rule them all.

A very pleasant scene taken with a lens that often had disparaging comments made about it. Its results look pretty good to me.

First hints of autumn here already. Oh, to live half the year in the northern hemisphere and half in the southern. Or even the whole year near the equator would do the trick.

Oldhand, I love your shot above with the drops of water hanging from the stem. I imagine that would look awesome as a huge print.

Here's a shot of Wheal Betsy Mine with. . . wait for it. . . yep, the Super Takumar 20mm. Wish I'd shot this one with a bit more sky and a bit less grass--yet another chance to learn by constant failure, I suppose. Meanwhile I ordered a brand new Zenitar 16mm fisheye yesterday at a price so cheap it would have been crazy not to (60 GBP). The postman is just gonna have to get used to me sitting on the doorstep waiting for him to arrive for the next few days.

Just a quick message from me, as I've been using my first pentax (k100d) all year, and busily acquiring a ridiculous (not my view of course!) number of lenses.

I have just bought a secondhand k10d off eBay, and picking it up this evening! I am a huge fan of the ccd sensor on the k100d, and figured that I just want "a little more megapixels" with the ccd, hence the k10d. From looking at the pictures on this thread, I don't think I will be disappointed. So, I am eagerly waiting to join the k10d club!!

The way things have moved on, I use topaz labs stuff to smarten up the pictures anyway, so I don't see noise issues as being as important now. If only pentax came up with a 16mp ccd! Guess I will have to start saving up for the 645d??

Hi Tarragon. I started out with the K100D too, then when it died I switched to the K10D clone Samsung GX-10. I think you'll love the extra sharpness and detail that you can get with your new K10D, but hang on to the K100D too because the two cameras have different skills in different areas. The K10D produces gloriously rich and detailed photos when the light is interesting, but when the light is a bit flat and boring that classic 6MP sensor in the K100D has a magical ability to make it look better than it really is.

I know what you mean about wishing for a 16MP CCD. It's a darn shame that CCD development was abandoned in favour of the cheaper CMOS technology, and so far I haven't seen any camera with a CMOS that I prefer over my K10D clone at low ISO settings. Unless the sensor in the new K-S1 turns out to be amazing, I'm planning on sticking with the 10MP CCD for the forseeable future.

I justified getting the k10d by telling my girlfriend (who had to go and pick up the camera for me) that I'd be selling my k100d to pay for the k10d! Now you've reinforced that nagging feeling I have in the back of my head about holding onto the k100d too, "just in case". I need to sell something else pretty quickly before she realises I now have two cameras(!)

Ah well, who needs 5 guitars anyway?

(I think the shot of the mill is great btw - I don't think you need worry about the grass being too much, as it gives the mill a nice solid base to sit on. It reinforces the sturdiness of the building IMO)

Edit: Just did a quick google for 16mp ccd's and both the Fuji Finepix S4800 and the Canon Powershot SX500 both have 16mp CCDs! But, not in dslrs. Point and shoots. Must have arrived too late for dslr's to use. Still, it means that there are ccd's out there with these resolutions. Just need someone to make a specialist ccd dslr! Wonder if Pentax would throw one together for us??


Edit2:- I got my hands on the k10d last night and wasn't disappointed! As it was night time, I could test out this apparent noisy high ISO business. It isn't that bad. And I use topaz denoise anyway, so I don't really see it as being as much of a problem now as it was when the camera first came out. Ok, so it isn't as detailed as the newer stuff but it's all about moodiness for night shots anyway, so I like to not see everything as if I was a cat!! I will have to play around worth it some more and see what I can do. it's a great camera!
