Default K10D New family member

I travelled to BC for the birth of our grandson and, rather than take a camera, I brought my old Olympus E-P2 for my son to keep and got back my old K10D for me to use (remember that one Harriet). Here are a few examples using the old 18-55mm DA kit lens. The grandson is Benjamin Ira Crummey and I am (admittedly) somewhat in awe of his good looks. I also have an image or two of their cat and the elusive BC backyard chicken ;-)

I will also soon have an 18-135mm, my first lens with an internal AF motor. A friend has moved on to Sony so I have purchased this lens as an all weather travel kit with either the K10D or the K3.

So precious! Love the photos and yes, I remember that K10. How’s the AF doing with the kit lens? Behaving itself? Glad to see it’s still going strong after all these years, and I hate to think how much is on the shutter now.

Better get lots of pictures fast, kids don’t stay any one way very long, they grow and develop so fast!

Precious!
And it proves that it's not the latest and the greatest that makes the image.
Could you explain to us not-Canadians about the BC backyard chicken, it it something compulsary in British Columbia?

The Brenizer Method. 18 images from the K10D, stitched into one 70 mega pixel image and then cropped and resized. My son Matt is in sharp focus but the seemingly wide angle shot was actually using the shallow DOF of a 50mm f1.7

The K10D works very well with an old FA 80-320mm f4.5-5.6, these images are from an afternoon walk by the river.

Ira,

What awesome news! Congrats! And best wishes!

Yes. Take lots of pictures!

Looks like you are getting reacquainted with the K10d quite nicely! Great shots!

A few more with the K10D and the FA 80-320mm f4.5-5.6. These are through my back window into my back yard.

The AF isn't bad and there are less than 40000 clicks on the shutter. I like the ergonomics and it is still very capable. Only the dynamic range and the high ISO performance limit it so for average scenes it still works fine. I refer to it as my disposable since I usually use it in places where I do not want to risk one of my newer cameras.
The K3 just turned over 10000, practically new!! I have an old *ist DS with only 6736 clicks!! Usable antiques.
