Well, I'm back. and now as an "Official Pentaxian" new K20D just arrived today, thanks to Samsung! as most of you remember, I had tons of trouble with my GX10. I finally convinced them to refund my money (it only took 5 months) the good thing about waiting so long was the price drop, for thirty dollars more, I was able to get the K20 body, all the normal stuff that comes with it + a Sandisk ultra II 2gig sd card an extra battery and a very nice camera bag that can be used as a sling bag, waist or back pack. and thats not all. santa came early and left me a Tamron adaptall P/KA adapter plus a 70-210mm f:3.8 and a 28-70mm f:3.5 lens both in mint condition! needless to say, I'm one happy camper.

while I'm sounding off, I just wanted to reiterate my sincer thanks to all of you for your support when mom passed away. Tthe kind word from you brought tears to my eyes and comfort to my heart, knowing that I had so many friends out there that really cared!
Again, thanks so much!

Congrats! I can't wait to see your first pictures, you won't have any trouble with it. And you certainly got a really good haul besides - well done!

Pentaxians are so much like a world-wide family, especially here. Everyone here has become my friends and I look forward each day to reading what everyone is doing.

Hi GW,

Welcome Back!

I'm sure that the K20 will take better care of you than the GX10. . . You will be impressed.

A true Christmas Tale! Well, GW, a photographer without a camera sounds a bit weird, I'm happy that changed so quickly for you.

Welcome back, GW. That was quick. Glad to see it.

And, congrats on your haul. I thought I was lucky this Christmas, but you definitely were luckier. My K20 should be arriving tomorrow. Just got the notice from Adorama. So, yes, there is a Santa Claus. Now we can both be learning our new cameras together.

I look forward to seeing what you do with it.
