Thanks Jack, Yes, I still use my K10d often and was close to buying a K5 back in September when I expected it might be replaced by the rumored K3 or some other new high end flagship camera from Pentax. However, the advent of the K5II and K5IIs muddies the water somewhat for me and I'm currently undecided re future cameras. I haven't looked into a K30, but saw it got good reviews.

In the meantime my next acquisition with probably be the Q's 06 Tele Zoom. It would be easier to use than my current approach of DA limited primes & K2Q adapter to get the same FL. I'll look forward to test results of its IQ.

Thanks for asking about our recent storm. We were fortunate to just have some heavy rain here in Halifax. South West NS got more of the wind, power outages, etc. Still all relatively minor and nothing like NJ & NY received from the hurricane.

Hi Geoff,

Glad to hear Halifax escaped with (relatively) minor damages   A photog/mate from Winnipeg shoots for one of the Halifax papers (His name is Tim Krochak) and, surprisingly, I haven't seen much from him on FB.

As for the 06 Tele Zoom, I just paid for mine along with the hood yesterday and am now, just waiting for it to arrive .......... inevitably whilst I am in Winnipeg    Oh well, someting to look forward to, aside from rain, when I come home

Cheers,

Jack

Regards, Geoff.
