Beautiful colors from that combo!
Thanks Steve!

The K20D brings some really nice characteristics out of lenses I think. Lenses like the M 50 1.7 and the DA 35 2.4 also get great color rendition with the K20D. And this is the K 55 f2, a (to me) legendary lens in its own right:

Even a 400mm lens would be too close for me to get near a mama bear and her cubs thanks for sharing that!

You have to stay at least 100 yds from bears and there was a ranger enforcing the rule.

This is me ignoring the overblown highlights rule.

Red is particularly hard to post process... but I think this turned out ok.

New Aquisition

I have been happily shooting with my 2 K-01's the last couple of years and came across this little package. Only 240 shutter count with original grip. Couldn't pass it up for under $140.00. Any tips or tricks, known quirks, or user comments? It has been a while since I shot with a mirrored SLR or DSLR. I have plenty of old and new glass to throw at it. FA, DA, A, M, and some old M42 lenses. I look forward to sharing some shots with the (New to ME) K20D.

That's a heck of a good deal for $140. I've been shooting with the K20D for 6 or 7 years and I really like it. I was shooting with the K100D (still have it) and my wife saw saw this one on QVC and bought it for me. Hope QVC offers the K3 soon.
