I had email issues on Vista using Kaspersky. I switched to Microsoft Essentials (free antivirus and spyware available for download at MS) and resolved all my problems. MSE is just as good as any other antivirus software. Check reviews and testing and see if it would fit your needs.

At today's rate close to $275.00.

It was higher than the USD last week.

---------- Post added 04-27-2010 at 03:43 PM ----------

I want to let everyone know that I left the grip connector rubber plug for the K10D in the grip holder when I sold it. I wrote the buyer and asked for it back. It may take 10 days for me to get it back. If I order one from Pentax it may take 2-3 weeks. Sale of the K10D is pending at the moment. When the interested buyer gives me his intention I will advise the forum.

I have this lens. It is much sharper. Your image is blurry from motion and off focus. Be careful in focus selection such as center focus only versus auto. HSM focus will be different from one to the other. To test sharpness, use a tripod. I use mine on a K10D with excellent results.

I got an offer from Corel valid for only one week, 19.99cdn for X3 upgrade. I opted for the download version as the price for the full box was 29.99cdn with shipping not included. The download version turnout to be a full install so my X2 version is still fully functional. I don't know why I was selected for this offer but for the price I could not turn it down. I am very happy with the changes in the new version. Parts of it are the same but many new features are available such as raw mode adjustment, express lab, the separate organizer and the creator mode program. Works very well so far.

I have the Ultimate and upgraded toPro X3. I like the new organiser, much better. Raw is excellent when setup is done. Handles DNG, K20, K10 but don't know about K7. The price was right, $20.00 cdn, downloaded. It was not an upgrade version but full new install. I ran both Utimate X2 and Pro X3 on a Quad and the speed is considerately faster for sure. It has very good features such as batch processing, HDR, and every adjustments found on PhotoShop. The Project Creator is very useful to load images to the web, direct access to Flickr, Youtube and Facebook, photo album and on. So far I am very please with it.

I have this lens on a K10D with a Kenko 1.5 Pz-Az. The f-stop shows normally from 70-200 but is as the lens sees it and not adjusted for the TC, if f2.8 than it is f4. It will focus hunt in low light, switch to manual to remove the problem. In good conditions, it performs well.

Windows users: upgrading to windows 7?

So how many times have you replaced your DSLR body in the past 6 years or purchased new ones. Can Pentax come out with a DLSR that will last or be satisfactory for 10 years+ with no firmware updaest? Software is barely keeping up with hardware designs. MS does not control hardware. Drivers for such new hardware is not written by MS. Buy quality hardware and you will get quality written drivers which will not affect your computer OS performance. This is like blaming the camera for the lack of photo composition. These are human made software and hardware items, they will fail or become obsolete. If we had perfect cars and drivers, we would not have breakdowns or accidents therefore no requirements for mechanics or insurances or warranties, dream world! Sometimes we fail in logic and common sense and expect to have everything but pay nothing.

You are right. Be aware that before the end of next year, drivers for XP on new hardware items will more than likely not be written and available. As for software, if well written, it should keep working but some features may not be available. We have seen the same story with Win98 when ME came out but eventually XP ,which is simply an improvement on ME, solved many of ME's problems. In a few years, XP will be a thing of the past, so life goes on.

I have one of these for my 50mm. It is used for producing natural skin tone in natural light. It can also act as a skylight but be aware it will affect the image color slightly. This filter worked very well with Konica or Kodakchrome 100 in the old days.
