There is an odd "three letter brand" online shop for used photographic equipment. The other day I was looking around on their site, suddenly there was a K10D in excellent condition with a shutter count of less than 5000 my basket and accidentally I must have hit some random buttons and today the DHL guy rang the bell and gave me a parcel with a K10D in it. Very strange all that...
However, as a friend of redundancy I can live with two K10D bodies.

E.

PS: The ticket for the new one is made with the FA 50/1.7

Between the great photographs here I'd like to ask a very practical question: what wrist strap (as an "insurance" if the camera slips out of my right hand) would you recommend?

The challenge with the K10D is that the top right eyelet is recessed so that the usual wrist straps with a metal ring as connector for a protruding round eyelet won't work.
I'd prefer a ribbon through the recessed eyelet. Unfortunately there seem to be only neck straps with that kind of connection type...

Any advice appreciated - thank you!

Try an OpTech wrist strap

Thank you for that.

Unfortunately I forgot to mention that neoprene is not my favourite material: I have one strap made of neoprene and don't like the haptics at all.

In the mean time I've found one alternative from Dörr where it seems to be possible to remove all the unnecessary parts.
