great to see your post.. just about the time i was going to email you..
Well it is good to hear from you. If Annette hadn't bought me that DL I may have ended up with another brand and missed out on all you fine people.

Hey Daniel, do you think Pentax would give me a discount on a new camera if they knew how prominent they were displayed in the article. Pentax dealer, here!!! I can't even buy a camera magazine here. Annette gave me a subscription to Shutterbug for my birthday so I am hoping to get my first issue this month.

Well deserved recognition Ira. I am sure that both you and the kids there will both reap rewards from the sharing of your hobby and fine photographic skills.

Heartfelt congratulations!

Harriet, I do get fair results from the zoom but never the sharp images I see from the better lenses. I wonder if the FA 80-320mm is any better?
I've had that one, the Tamron 70-300 (better) and the Pentax 55-300 (much better). The 80-320 is the only one I've disposed of.
