I was looking through some old images, wondering if perhaps we could do a small book on ice images.. and found some old K20D images. It really wasn't that long ago it was my every day camera. 2012 I believe.

Well, they don't let you in the house on top and I didn't bring my climbing gear. Not to mention the park ranger hauling me off in cuffs.

I did take some photos from as high as I could go. I can see if any of them are any good when I get home...

Can the K20D use Sigma "HSM" lenses to give auto focus ? I am considering a Sigma 17-70mm HSM zoom - any thoughts on this lens ?

It works fine with my 18-250 HSM.

It's an 18-135, 16-85 kind of lens. People who have it like it.

Those are quite awesome, you could definitely make a book!

From our 2013 trip to the Dorset Fire Tower, not the original but built on the same location, but built to modern safety specs sp people can go up in the gondola.









View of the town of Dorset from the tower.

My K20D might suspect I'm thinking of trading it for a K5... mainly for video and the mic input (my wife has a blog and we've done videos, for which the K-r is fine, but I think the mic in will help the audio quality).

So it's been delivering some great IQ if I may say so...
