    Recently acquired from ebay, Pentax ES II, cosmetically and optically like new EXCEPT that Viewfinder blind is locked shut, and nothing I do (new batteries, fiddle the shutter-speed dial, battery-test button, exposure-compensation-dial, hitting it, praying) has any effect. I COULD just gestimate the distance frame bygolly, and shoot, and with that lovely Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 1.8/55, it would probably come out with a good photograph, ... but with such a beautiful TTL, it seems a shame.

    H E L L P !!!

    The details from D300 are just amazing.

    Pentax k20d or k10d sensors are geared for more dynamic range in the shadow area instead of highlight performance.

    Like you, I am patiently waiting for Canon 5d MK II price to come down. After all, I would stick with D3 if I had that kind of money.

    A few pentax street candid shooters like Doyle Shafer has already used D3 and he is sooo happy wtih just two lenses, 85mm f1.4 and 50mm f1.2

    Cool stuff that you like D300. CRK is a stupid company to let you go as a pro. I doubt they care about pentax products at all.

    I was almost going over to get D300 until I realised that the lens selection were not really my cup of tea. Image quality IMHO is better than k20d image rendering though ...

    I know where you hang around and I will watch out for you in these two forums.

    How's Nikon D300? The price is coming down and I see that you had a blast with it.

    The sensor is really good in that camera and the details are just simply amazing, right?
