She's part of one of our neighborhood flocks. We have no shortage of turkeys around here. But for some reason we don't see them as often in November. :)

My K-70. No Problems. How about you?

I drowned my K-3 pushing the limits of it's WR. Didn't end well. Went back to using my K-50 while waiting for the successor to the K-3ii to be announced. When that didn't happen I bought a K-70. Almost went for the KP but at the time the K-70 was almost half the price. I also thought that when the next APS-C "flagship" hit the shelves it might not be THAT much different than the KP. But there might be enough of a difference to make me wish I had waited. Anyway, I ended up with the K-70 and have no regrets. So far. :)
I completely agree with you. The K-70 rocks.

I moved up from a K-50 as well. No aperture block problems with my K-50 either.



Haven't used pixel shift yet. Going to have to give it a try.

Congratulations on your $10.00 coffee maker. In my 40+ years of buying them have never seen such a cheap one for sale. Two features I insist my coffee maker has is to be able to set it to turn on by itself in the morning and have an auto shut off. Have to spend at least $18.00 around here for one like that. :)

Bought my K-70 early January of this year. Just under 7,500 shutter clicks so far. Anybody else NOT having aperture block problems? Seeing as there is a thread to report aperture problems it only seems fair to have a thread for people to share their reasons why they are happy with their K-70. Here are a few of mine.

Bang for your buck. I find it amazing that Pentax could cram all that into a DSLR for the price. Much of what is available I haven't even explored yet.

The flippy screen. Didn't think I'd like it let alone need it. But for close to the ground macro shots? My 60 yr old back says thank you K-70!

Build quality. The K-70 may not have a magnesium alloy frame like the K-3 or KP but it still feels solid. I broke my K-3. The feel of the K-70 is not that far behind.

I could delve into the minutia of what I like about my K-70. But I would bore both you and I.

I realize there is the possibility of my K-70 going belly up with aperture block failure sometime in the future but temper that thought with the knowledge that many electronic gadgets fail for any number of reasons. Hell, I spent almost $70.00 on a high end Mr. Coffee that didn't last 6 months.

As of today I am a proud K-70 owner. Any others out there?

Their sound, especially the lead singer, reminds me of a popular band from the 60's and 70's. Just can't seem to put a finger on it. Ex Cedrin, Red Emblem, Ted Hendrin……..Oh it'll come to me.

I like the high contrast in the shot. We used to raise Boer/Nubian cross goats. I miss kidding season with all the babies running and jumping around. Stressful at times but mostly good memories.

Nice shots. I remember reading about Robber's Cave when I was a youngster and read everything I could about "Outlaws of the West." What a great spot to build a brewery.



Love the "wino xing sign." :D

Topaz soft focus filter bokeh. I've spent a lot of time "focused" on getting sharp images. Going to take a break from that for a while and try to find the balance between soft and out of focus. A distinction that's always been difficult for me.:)

Nice series. Looks like a really fun place. There's a place in Eugene that brings in beer from all over the country. All over the world actually. Next time I'm there I'll look for it.
