Will a K20D work with a 32Gig SD card?

Sure will but you'll only get the same number of shots as a 16GB SD card.

Perhaps this shows a bit of the uniqueness of the K20D when it comes to how it presents the colors, especially browns and yellows.

You might get more responses if you post your question in the lens section, or maybe the Sigma Lens Club thread.

I just wanted to say hello, since wtlwdwgn invited me here (and I really enjoyed reading the thread!), but he got me a bit nervous here:

I have a 32GB SD card in mine, and it reports about 1300 (RAW) pictures. That is, twice as many as my 16GB card.
Though I never filled it beyond 300, I just feel better with a lot of space left.
Are you sure you're right there? Does it maybe hit some software limit or even corrupt the SD card when 650 images are written...?
My laptop is broken and I won't be able to copy any excess images to a hard drive on a 5 day vacation next week

That aside
Nice to see there are more people still using this old camera. Seriously, 7 years in the current camera market, that's pretty long! :P
But besides the visual noise in low light conditions and the "if you expose for 30 seconds, you need to wait 30 other seconds for the dark field subtraction" which you can't disable [that easy], the K20D delivers exactly what I want for a good beginners camera.
I mean, I could post about WR, SR, IQ and old, inexpensive lenses.. but you guys know all that, I suppose.

There are some nice inspirations in the thread and it's great to see what this camera is capable of.

Here are two of my pictures. The first one is a friends dog I shot with the Pentax-F 70-210 @ ISO400, f/8, 1/160s:


The other is a detailed macro shot (DOF not 100% where I wanted it to have), of the picture I posted in the Welcome forum.
Taken with the Tamron SP 90mm (52B) @ ISO1600, 1/125s, and I suppose F/2.5. PP: crop, NR, more light & color adjustments.
