Well, I am upgrading to a K5, which, by Harriet's estimate, is the first Pentax to exceed the image quality of the old DS. My K20D has over 46000 clicks on it so it is going to be retired to backup status after Christmas. I have a K7 which I will take back up here to the great white north with me and the K5 will wait for my final return in June.

How does that fit with my original premise? Well I still have a DS here (a high mileage 21000 click model) with an old AF500 TTL flash and I have another in NB sitting is a small Lowepro toploader bag ready to go at a moments notice. The DS I have up here is truly my "disposable" camera since it cost me so little ($60CDN including taxes, three month warranty and shipping to Baker Lake) I am willing to risk it in places I would not normally want to bring an expensive camera. I am more concerned with the F 50mm f1.7 mounted on it but... I do have an FA 1.4 back home.

After a bad case of GAS that has lasted for years I think I am finally ready to act like a photographer.

BTW I have only actually gotten to meet a couple of members here, Daniel from Toronto and Harriet from California. My profile picture here shows me with the K20D at Red Rocks outside Las Vegas, I believe it may have been taken by Harriet with her K5.
