Here is a sample, taken with an old Sigma UC ZOOM 70-210mm f4-5.6 lens, not a particularly impressive piece. The picture was taken at118mm, f5.6 at 1/200 of a second, levels adjusted and some sharpening in PS Elements. The picture is of the arm of our old Victrola with the snow outside the window, the very narrow DOF is a novelty after using small sensor digitals for a couple of years.

Thanks for the encouragement, enjoy.

A big reliability issue is the battery. D has a proprietary battery. If you fail to have a second charged battery on hand, you're out of business.

With the DS, you drop into the local 7-11, and you keep on shooting.

And a few sets of NiMH batteries are cheaper and more convenient.

I'd like the additional controls, though.

All Pentax DSLRs use AA batteries.
