Welcome to the world of Pentax, my friend. These are wonderful shots, and make me want to upgrade even more than before.

The one drawback is the battery; it's expensive and being a lithium battery, has to be drawn down fully before recharging to avoid "memory" problems. Did you buy an extra battery?

I'm happy with the *istD, precisely because I can use a 15 minute charger, or even buy AA batteries at a convenience store. How does the battery work for you?

I completely understand your frustration at not being able to shoot this before. I'd have considered shooting at 1/2" to be tempting fate, but it seems to have worked out well. Congradulations. I'm looking forward to more.

Dear Barbarian, thank you for the kind feedback!

Ialways heard praises about the ergonomicsof this camera but often thought lighter would be better...but not anymore! The extra 200gr or so makes this machine very balanced, solid and reliable. I caneven shoot@an exposure time of 1/8'' when the SR (shake reduction) is off!Moreover while playing with its features, changing lensor takingin or out,I don't feel tenseforI might drop it because there's always enough place left to handle it : ) Still, I wonder if I seriously considered upgrading if I hadagreat camera such as*istD...or buy a pentax 12-24 lens instead!!

As for the battery isue, I only had to recharge once after a five- day intensive use, which is very good I think! I remember drying up the battery of my compact within two days...

Please don't hesitate to ask any further questions about this beautiful baby:-)
