Hi - Hope I'm doing this right. It's my first serious foray into a forum. Still casting my vote for #7. It's an incredibly strong photo to my eye.

Best regards,

Susan

The razor-sharpness of the edge separating the black from the white areas is chilling. There is much to be said about them all; compliments to the makers.

Hello again, and many thanks to those who replied to my query. I really didn't want to switch to a new brand of SLR (started with a Spotmatic, ya know), and you provided just what I needed to know and them some, including inspiration.

Being a traditional shopper, I took my copious notes and further ideas to one of the few remaining camera stores in Toronto a couple of days ago, and have made the purchase of a K3 body. Like the K3II, it is weather-sealed, which should help cut down some of the shutter noise, and has an LCD dial on the top, which is nice to have again -- I've been nursing along a growing black blob on my K100 for two years. No built-in WiFi or GPS, and that's fine by me.

Am keeping my Pentax 18-55 and Sigma 80-200 lenses for now. I've probably got the fastest, most compact around, so am hoping that the new camera, and a bit more leeway on the ISO will help. I'm really excited, but no time so far to do anything but fully charge and install the battery ... and admire my purchase. Working through the manual, and looking forward to an upcoming shoot with a local photo meet-up group for a test run. Yours in Pentaxing!

I have a dilemma: Stick with Pentax, or switch brands. My first SLR was a Pentax Spotmatic, and I now use a K100D. I've got a nice library of lenses I like, so it seems a shame to switch, not to mention costly. My main line of photography is performance portraits of jazz/improv musicians, which you can see in Gallery O. You will see why low-light capabilities are part of my quest.

I'm thinking about a K3 or KS2, and would appreciate any comments you may have on either, or perhaps something you have found to be better. If you've switched to Canon (my #2 choice), what model did you choose? Are you happy? Many thanks for any insights you have time to share.
