Loving the Upgrades

My 72 year old father recently decided to go out and buy himself a K20. I loved his reasoning for it, I'm 72 years old, what am I waiting for??. Now he already has the original *iSTD and the K10D. He traded the *iSTD into Adorama when he ordered the K20 and they only gave him $75 for it, which I think was a little cheap. After having the K20 for a few days, which he is loving every minute of, I get an email telling me that since he won't be needing the K10 anymore he's sending it to me, and oh by the way here is the UPS tracking number.

I recived the "new" K10 on Friday and the body is in fabulous condition, but then I knew it would be. There are under 20K activations on it so there is a lot of life left in the camera.

The next time I hear someone complain about getting a hand-me-down I can smile and say that sometimes that's not to bad.

He sounds like an awesome dad. Perhaps the K20 has your name on it too, just as soon as the K7 gets out there.

Congratulations. So are you going to recruit your father to the forum?

My dad and I have been discussing the new K7 but for what we shoot it's not an upgrade either of us are planning in the near future. Until he sent me the K10 I was planning on buying a K20 and still may within a year.

I think my dad does browse the forums, in fact he's the one that told me about this one. He may even have made an account here, but I haven't seen him post.
