K20D tested in really hard...

I spent last week photographing Ладога-Трофи Off Road -competition in Russia. Pictures will go to Russian 4x4 -magazine and one Finnish 4x4 -magazine. Taking about 2500 photos in very hard circumstances. I actually once float my camera and brand new 55-300mm in a swamp when I was crossing it. The reason was that I was the wrong side of the swamp to get "good" pictures so I have to "swim" to the other side. And I was more than happy when my K20D works and new zoom was able to work just after filter cleaning.
So K20D is really made for hard places where you need your camera reliability. By the way the new 55-300mm is excellent.

I try find out time for doing my own pages........but maybe next month... you are not the first one who has been asking the same.... Actually I use my Nikkormat FT and ELW -cameras end of last year, but then my magazine companys say definately no, for old time film pictures... so I have to move this time when picture is not a picture.
