Re: Auto SLR - Av and Tv modes.

Sorry. My innate Pentaxianism is showing, I'm afraid! I remember the ES, although I don't think I ever shot with one, but I have vivid memories of the ME Super, since several friends had them and I played around with them a lot. Never found it worth giving up my beloved K1000 to get the automation.

Still don't, really, except I couldn't afford to work in film any more, and I wanted to go digital for the sake of my blog. It wasn't that there was anything wrong with the all manual basic film SLR for my work. I admit I am enjoying the high ISO results and the whole autofocus thing is wicked cool. And yeah, I'm also finally seeing the point of aperture priority automation, which is good since I'm kinda stuck with it as my new lenses don't have aperture rings.
