Not the kind of photo I like to post but at least we all walked away from it. Sideswiped by a hit and run driver on the interstate highway. Amazingly the car drives fine. Admin if this needs moved please do so for me.

I'd say you handled the light very well! Number two is just sooooo precious! That youngster sure is having fun too. Well done!

I also did a double check to make certain you were using one of the weather sealed models. Whew, glad you were!:D

That is so true. The only way others can devalue us is because we give them the means to do so. My enemies have no power over me except that which I choose to give them. The only way they can devalue me is if I give them some type of recognition or acknowledgment.

Thanks for the great shot! As a fly fisherman this shot really appeals to me. I know several people who fish the Flathead. Perhaps someday I will.......

Thanks for sharing and what is the perspective from the other bank?

You speak without knowing me and pick as you wish from my post. Use the entire quote. There are two DSLR's, one 35mm SLR and one point and shoot in my house. The DSLR's and SLR are Pentax and unless Pentax goes out of business I will remain a very dedicated Pentax fan. The point and shoot is Canon.

I buy Pentax DSLR/SLR exclusively. I am simply saying that I accept their limitations and do not complain about them. I find ways around them. My friend has a Canon. We compare shots a lot and I assure you that both cameras have specific things they do well that the other one does not do well. You will find very few people as devoted to Pentax as I have been over the decades. That having been said if I were a professional photographer, as is my brother, I would own Pentax, Canon, Nikon, Olympus and probably Leica as he does. he will tell you straight up that no matter what you cannot get more for your dollar with any brand other than with Pentax.

You talk about me being logical and others being more emotional about their Pentax. Well, you can have my Pentax when you pry it from my cold, dead fingers.

I tried my best to read the entire thread but just cannot take it any more.

Another Pentax doesn't make this, that or the other thing for my purposes so Pentax is dead thread. I am not elderly but would you care to guess how much of this I have heard over the decades?

Pentax is Pentax. Period. They are not Canon, Nikon or any other brand other than Pentax. Should anyone buy any given brand and expect it to have the same specs/performance as the other brands, well, there is something wrong with you and you will be disappointed. A camera is a tool and you pick the one or ones that you think suits you best.

I have been using exclusively Pentax for almost 30 years. In that time I have heard the death cry for this company more than once, I assure you. 20 years from now Pentax will still be in business and if I am still around I will be buying their gear. I may buy other makes as well but I will not jump ship on Pentax. IMHO that is a true Pentaxian!

Just my 2 cents worth.:)
