The 7D is calling ... because I really really want an MPE-65 and there is NO other lens like it in the whole wide world (it natively does from 1:1 up to 5:1 macro for those who don't know the lens) !

However, that is the only reason I could find so far for supplementing my growing Pentax system, and I really don't see any reason to change now that Pentax have come out with the K5 and, from all indications, fixed the weaknesses of the K7 (notably high ISO and added a speedier AF, though the K7 is no slouch).

As for forums, I can only echo Kjell, well this is home, a great mix of people, expert assessment and assistance, and a very friendly atmosphere. I'd love to meet some of you in person someday.

Now and again a venture forth into other forums but this is my only regular (though until mid-November I'm afraid my daily visits are going to be curtailed, as they have been for the past month, by work etc.).
