G'day mate

Yeah - got a keeper here - well exposed, focused & sharp
just what you'd expect from a good camera + operator too

Regards, Phil

I agree with Phil on this one. You did well.

Well done, I had a DS which was later stolen from my son. With the right photographer it is a fantastic camera. You have clearly made the best of a less-than-ideal situation.

Thanks for the kind comments-been thinking about upgrading to a K30-but then I get results like this-I know the old DS backwards and forwards-then I talk myself out of it.

The DS was the only camera I've sold that I regretted selling, it was such a fun, light camera. I like to think it continues on, that perhaps the thief sold it to someone who is enjoying it as much as it's 3 past owners did.

But now that I've used cameras with anti-shake and better high ISO capability, I wouldn't want to go back to a DS. The K30 is attractive because it is smaller and lighter than the K5, so I'd have a very hard time resisting the K30.

Great lighting and great image - a fine old camera in some very capable hands!
