I think the photographer with the D90 did a poor job.Maybe he had a bad day.Im sure you can get alot better results with the d90 than what he has done.I went from the K20D to the D90,absolutely no regrets.Dont put equipment down cause the photographer stuffed up.

Hi.ive got a few PMs about spliting the sale up.I mite end up doing that but id like to give it a couple of days before i do.Only placed the add yesterday.Im hoping an Aussie will see this and see the value in the kit.I just priced a couple of items at
Aussie stores
Teds Cameras -K20D,DA 18-55mm -$1499
Camera Warehouse-K20D Body only-$1229
Camera Warehouse-DA55-300mm-$679
Camera Warehouse-Sigma 17-70mm-$579
When you look at my kit price its pretty good value after looking at these prices.
Ive just uploaded more pics from camera and lenses to my photo gallery, so people can check out image quality from the system.Like i said the K20D, DA55-300,Sigma 17-70 and the Flash are in mint condition not a scratch or mark on them and work perfectly.
I bought the Sears only used it once and Takumar never used,bought on here from jsherman and they are in very good condition.So give me a few days before
splitting items up.I would luv to have kept the lot but due to things bein quite at work im down to 19hrs a week,so its not an option.Will relist post if i split items.
Plse remeber i paid Aus prices hard to match US prices but il do my best if split.
Thnx Paul

Ye it was a good day for shots,in one event of the bull riders no one scored a point as they all got thrown of making it good for action shots.I was surprised how much air the horses got and lucky enough to catch them air born ,so happy with that.Got therer early to get my spot in the front and stayed there all day.
Just wanted to say thnx to ppl for comments on the threads.

Ye i have to agree,im not a big fan of P.P mainly cause im not that good at it.The originals were sharp enough shouldve left them alone,I was tryin to give them a bit more punch but over did it.Im goin to post another lot unprocessed think theyl be better.More natural.Plus id like ppl to see the results straight from the camera to give the a better idea of the camera and lens performance.Thnx for comments.

Hi,me again.Was pretty happy with set up performance out of 200 shots approx only 3 blurred unusable shots .So happy with the amount of keepers i got.
I had to shoot between the bars of the steel fencing so a couple deleted for bad composition so all in all not bad.
Thnx Paul

DA 55-300mm

Hi,ive had the DA 55-300mm for a while now.I think you will be surprised how quik it does focus.On bright sunny days its pretty quik but does slow down as the light drops.It can be slow on low contrast days but in good light its pretty good.I took this pic using the K20D in the early morning it focused in a second.I had it printed at 11x14 and the other customers in the print shop said how nice it was.Sometimes for a change i play around using the K20D as a Point and shoot
it was in Auto mode ISO 800, Let the camera do the work for me,the reults are surprising.Its a top lens in good light just have to work a bit harder in low light but the results are there.Il be taking it to a Rodeo nxt weekend hoping for some good shots.Ive used it for sports to with no prob so give it some serious thought.
Thnx Paul

Hi,just thought id show you a few results from auto focus on the DA 55-300MM.
To be honest ive never manuel focused in my life but i do intend to try soon.Im
waiting for the footy season to start here soon to see how the lens performs at sports and would like to be able to manuel focus if needed but im hoping auto focus will do the job.It does have the quik shift focus i tried a couple of times but never realy needed just tried it for the hell of it.Just wanted to say im sure the 55-300 will do a good job for you in manuel or auto.
Thnx Paul

What's really wrong with K20D ?

Personally i think the K20D is a gr8 camera.All the latest DSLR seem pretty even when you shoot raw but the K20D leaves them for dead when your a JPEG shooter.I do portraits ,events,birding and sports and scenery it does it all for me.
thnx Paul;
