I really like the black rapid hand strap used the same way. Without the bottom attachement.

My k5 got damaged this way this winter. Went to Cuba with the camera in bagages. The k5 was really cold when I got it back. Opened and changed lens and the hot wet air of Cuba got in. Got some random troubles. In the end metering wouldn't work anymore. It's in the repair shop right now.
Hope it goes better for you.

dal 55-300 or da 55-300

I'd say buy the dal used for less than 200, try it it really bugs you to miss any feature it doesn't have. Then resell it for almost the same amount and try the da.
Chances are you'll keep it if you use it or may even find out you don't really use it and be glad you only have bought the dal.

I have you beaten. Couple of years ago I bought a Fuji exr 200 for ~ 500$ the day before leaving for a trip in Cuba. Took a coupe of pictures in the plane on the way there, left it on the plane, under the seat... Never got it back.

Pentax to iPad connectivity

I received the transcend wifi today and I can compare it to the eyefi pro x2. I had the x2 but returned it, it was a class 6, it was a slow card and I had to lock the picture to transfer it to my phone without using the slow server. The transcend is class 10 and it uses an app on iPhone ipad with preview. You can download whichever picture you want from it through the app, no locking pictures on the camera. Raw can be downloaded but not viewed.
It's 60$ on newegg for. 32gb, I recommend it.

Received it today. It's a fun lens. I wonder if I will really use it, but it's fun. A lot wider than 18mm from my kit lens.

On on yes. Maybe you will not like it, after all it's off per default, but for me, taking photographs of my kids, it's a life saver.
If the sky is very bright I will use center point for AE metering, the middle one most of the time.

There is an easy way I use to make sure my subject is almost always correctly exposed. In the settings I use AE-L with AF locked and Link AE to AF point. I always focus on my subject and recompose.
I also use the center point for AE metering or the middle setting, almost never the full picture setting unless I clearly need it.
Hope it helps.
