Actually, that's what I did. Bought the K20D, set it on green, and went to Venice to take pictures. My pictures turned out great!:) Nothing like beginner's luck!!

For most of those situations you want low light and as grainy as possible...

Interesting impressions. I spent the weekend in Venice with my new K20D and AF18-250 lens. I shot on the green setting throughout and had great pictures. It became clear that manual will be needed in low light situations of course. All the bad shots were due to my own stupidity. I am amazed at this camera! The zoom lens is a real winner too; much better than I expected, though it does extend from gravity when you don't expect it. A bit more friction would be nice.

Due to some overzealous housecleaning, the cd for my new K20D was thrown away! How can I get a replacement!?:o

OK, here is the first picture! It was taken for posting on the Turbo Dodge Forum so it's at the lowest resolution. DA 12-24mm at 12.

I haven't been this smitten since seeing Racquel Welch in 1000000 BC 40 years ago! I also got the DA 12-24 lense and can't wait to try it all out-battery is still charging....WooHooo!:D

Quality problems w/DA18-250 or 12-24?

Reading about all of the problems with the new DA 16-50 lenses, I am now wondering about the lenses I have ordered which are the 18-250 and 12-24 Pentaxes. Have there been problems reported with them also? I already have the 18-250 but the K20D body hasn't arrived yet so I can't test it. :(

You can buy a new K10D for around $600. Sell your old one for $350.

I have an LX, 2 MXs, an ME, MG and MV-1 as well as a K1000. The LX is the hands down winner, the K1000 second. The MX is a fine camera but I have trouble seeing the meter readings in strong light. The K1000 has a very visible needle and the LX is just about perfect in every way. I wish they made a digital back for the LX.

Today I received a Pentax DA 18-250 lens from Cameta. There was no warranty card with the lens. Is that normal? The receipt said I have to return within 14 days (6 of which are already past) and I haven't yet received the K20D body to try it on. Should I be concerned?

$250 plus shipping? Why not buy a new updated body and sell the old one? Good grief!

My 45-125 doesn't say "M" on it. It's an earlier lense and just says SMC. Any opinions on the 28-135?

I have three K mount manual Pentax zooms from long bygone days: SMC 45-125mm, SMC A 70-210mm, and SMC A 28-135mm (a heavy beast). How good are these lenses? :)

I tearfully retired my beloved LX this week and bought a K20D. I have just about everything to learn all over again but let me start with one question: will my old AF280T flash work OK with the K20D?
