Stunning colors... can you image a better way to end a day than looking at this amazing sky?

Coincident, Ordo - and an eagerness to try out this camera. Bought one 3 weeks ago, slightly used with 1700 exposures only, off someone I trust, toghether with the kit-lens 18-55mm, the 55-300mm and a D-Xenon Schneider KREUTZNACH 100mm f 2,8 (very, very sharp lens!!) Macro-lens.

It's a 'big' camera. With 'big' I mean it is a camera that takes time to get to know. So many user-settings and so much to change / set / try out! Certainly very different from what I'm used to! I must say, that I am still not sure whether I have seen all the best of that camera yet, because there is so much. I must also confess that I made a mistake buying the K-7 as it turned out to be too big and too heavy for me and my use, compared to my G1.

Having all that gear ( and specially with the 55-300mm in mind) my tripod was too small, so I had to buy a better, bigger, and more stable tripod (Manfrotto Mo 55 CX Pro 4 in karbonfiber) as well, and together with all the gear it is getting too heavy to be on my hiking-trips. I feel like a mule when I go on my photo-trips, which sometimes take 5-6 hours trecking cross country and to places way out of the ordinary trails. My 62-year old back is not getting any younger and is aching and complaining when I get home, so it has taken most of the fun out of it...

So I'm selling it again: http://www.finn.no/finn/torget/tilsa...nkode=21670288 (Don't know why this link isn't working...)



Great camera and a solid pice of equipment for the right people (I'm not on of them) with superb Bracket-functions (which is very important for me) for taking HDR-shots - that was my main-reason to get this camera in the first place!

Thank you, shoturtle!

No, this is - as always - a HDR. It would have been impossible to get any details on those nearby rocks with one single shot as the dynamic difference was too big!
