Very nice!!!

Since my KS1 has developed the aperture module problem (or whatever it is), I'm sort-of looking for something to replace it with. I really want another KS1 since I want small and light-weight as a second camera, but just don't know whether I really want to buy a new camera or get mine fixed. Your photo with the K70 might push me into looking at something like that instead.

There is also the KS2 to consider, the basic form factor of the KS1 but weather resistant and without the "mood lighting". The K70 is cetainly not a bad choice.

You guys have so many camera bodies whereas the last one I have is a dated K20D. I do not even know these camera models and their spec.
I am a confessed penny pincher.
K70 is still new to me. Maybe later I will have trouble pushing it because of its limitation

During the eclipse I was using a K100 as a second camera, so don't feel badly about using a K20 and the new K70. I'm in no rush to get a second camera right now, but could be talked into one if people keep posting awesome photos...
