Congratulations Roy

One steep learing curve from the DS, but I am sure you will have the talent to make it work.

Well Roy....
I have a guest room you can use if you need it!

Congrats on getting the K20, you're gonna love it.
Ya know, I got my other half a K10 for her own self after I got my 20, now I'm having trouble keeping up with my lenses.


Now she stops at the lake on the way to work and back just to take photos, if she's not home when I expect her... I know where she's at.

Congrats! It's about time for an upgrade for you.

You won't have any trouble with the transition. The menus are enough different that it can be a bit frustrating at first. And processing the pictures with Photoshop is different, takes some fiddling around to figure out the right settings. Have a great time playing with it.

Roy....Sorry about the wiggle in your hands. Meds do some crazy things to us. I must take eight or ten kinds, all of which have some affect, but my hands are still rock steady. I regularly get sharp shots at one tenth second, with SR, of course.
At my age, 82 years, I feel pretty lucky to open my eyes every morning and see daylight. Heck, I can even still hear the birds singing, smell the coffee, and taste last night's nightcap, but oooh, every part of my body hurts for about an hour. I just take things slow for a while, then the world becoimes magic again.
Lots of luck.
