Yes, same here. On the same Easter Sunday we took a long walk and ended up in this section of more modern homes, a school and some stores not open. Definitely where people actually lived. Came around the corner and found the car park and a Shipping/boat/water taxi stop.

Your Venice pics are great. I recognize the some of the places and I even have the some of the same shots. My wife took a picture of the the dragon.

It was pretty nice once we got away from the people. We had a nice time in spite of that. Recommend the free walking tour to see less traveled. Areas

Got some of my best pics ever. See here:

Hi Pentaxians

I rarely if ever upload my pictures to be seen by others but these I really like and feel confident enough to share. My photography style is to have Lightroom rescue my photos so all have been processed.

It was Easter morning What a wonderful way to see Venice; We had the place to ourselves. Last pic is my wife and the best traveling companion I could ever have. Most, but not all, shot with my A28mm 2.8 lens. Others with the kit.

Film camera with Diopter? PZ1P, ZX5n, Olympus OM4? These are the ones I have but there are probably others. Pentax ME Super and Minolta X700 don't have them but their viewfinders are big, bright and clear.

Thanks! I checked Target and they only have them in two stores both 40-50 miles away. San Jose is not too far so I might be able to do that on a Saturday afternoon. I am in Marin on Saturday so I can check the Petaluma store.

It is amazing that I live in the biggest city in the area, SF, and pentax can't get there gear in store there. Fry's use to have them but no more. Now a Nikon/Canon/Sony shop.

Hi all

I live in the SF bay area and believe it or not there is absolutely no place anywhere that I have found that carries Pentax DSLR cameras! I purchased all my Pentax digital cameras (k30,k-r,k-x,k01) site unseen and have have found them to be exactly what I wanted. Until now.

I just purchased a k30 from a fellow forum member and it is a great camera but something bugs me about it. I chose the K30 because it is different just like the K01 was. I fell in love immediately with the K01 and figured it would be the same with the k30. But sometimes different is not better. I really liked the feel of the k-x and k-r in my hand but the K30 feels different. I know I can get use to it but based on the photos I am thinking the K50 would be a better choice for me.

BUT there is no place to try it out to see! So I have a request. Does any one have a k50 and is within 30 miles of San Francisco and would be willing to meet someplace to let me see how it feels I would greatly appreciate it. I work in San Carlos and live in SF and am often in Marin.

Anyway PM me if you would be will to meet. I can buy you a cup of coffee and a pastry :)

Jim

250.00 USD

Item Description
I upgraded my camera so have this wonderful Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) Pentax K-R. Affectionately known as the Storm Trooper camera, I have this for a few years but it only has 7,292 shutter activations (Shutter rated for 100,000). Everything works perfectly and it is in very good to excellent condition. The only flaw I found was the rear screen has a slight flaw on the left side. See pics. Not visible when the screen is on.

Specs below. This camera has traveled with me all over Italy twice without a hiccup! Great low light performance.

In some ways I like this camera better than my k-30. It is smaller and lighter and has less buttons so I find it a bit easier to use.

Includes 18-55 Lens (in White!) Original box, manuals, 2 batteries non oem, charger and AA battery holder/adapter so you can use both types of batteries.

I will ship to US and Canada but $10 is for continental US only.

Cool lens. The widest I have is the 18-55 kit lens I got with my kr.. Though I am looking at a vivitar 20mm I saw at at a store. Reviews were mixed but I was impressed by the pics I took in the store. Actually they had a used 10-17 I think...

I Own a Kr... Any Reason to Buy K-01?

MY thought process as well. I have a kr and figured I would get the k01 for the lens and fell for the camera. The 40xs is a really great lens on either both the kr and the k01. The image quality is a definite step up from the kr.

What I noticed was all of the reviews I read of folks getting the k01 cause of the price or to get the 40xs at a discount and then loved the camera. I don't think you will be disappointed. I wasnt.

I will echo these posts. I have a kr and the k01. Image quality is clearly better and you will see it right away. The k01 is smaller. Not by much but as it square so i find it takes up less space. I am not giving up the kr (unless it is to get a k5 or k30) but the k01 and 3 lenses are coming with me to italy in a pacsafe 100 bag. I find the auto focus sometmes slower but not always. To be honest I am not sure it is slower cause I don't usually need it fast.

Try it and if you don't like you can sell it. I have a white kr and k01. Wouldnt want to chose but k01 image quality has me hooked.
