Default In memory of my K7

Well, since I've sold my K7,and am now waiting on delivery of my K5, I thought I'd share some good times I had with my old friend the K7.
I can't believe it, but I already miss her.

Hi Tony,

Some great shots!

I have to say that IMO, you'll miss it a lot less when you get the K-5. My K-7 feels like an orphaned child now, even though I often carry it as a backup. I doubt if I've changed the battery once in the K-7 since Dec.

It's always good to go back and view pics from an "old friend" camera body, but the K-5 should open up whole new possibilities for shooting. The sensor is quantum leap.

Yeah, I'm really looking forward to it. Should be here Wednesday. Sure hope I don't have that mirror flop issue.

I love the third photo and last. But, what is the second a photo of. I just can't figure it out.

LOL! We were at a renaissance fare, and there was a lot of strange goings on. This one took the cake. Yes, it is what I think you think it is.

Very nice series! There's no doubt that the K7 is a capable camera. But like Scott mentioned, get the K5 in your hands for a month or two and you won't miss it at all.
