So by the end of July I will have 2 K20's for sale (looking to buy a nother K5) both K20's have extra battery's and battery grips

good, that's what I want.

I've seen the video on the AF and was impress but it's ISO I'm also interested as the dance school has changed venue's and the lighting is a lot different Darker and more coloured lighting so ISO 500 is not cutting it any more.

I never used to go above 400ISO on the K20D for bird shots and I wasn't happy with that with the K-5 I'm happy with 800ISO even though I could go to 1600ISO and still use it.

The big difference is on shots that are too dark. From RAW you can easily pull them up by 1.5 stops and it doesn't even show.

well I've bought the K-5 and had it for three day but not had a chance to use it yet?

I have also bought a battery grip from ebay with two extra batteries all charged and with a 8g sd card in it

I am doing a village fair Saturday for charity four shots for a pound and the images are emailed

if nothing else I should get some clients for future work and emails for special offers.

the thing is I thing I will use my K20D as I have a gazebo as a studio (black) so I will only need two speedlight (soft box and a hair light)

the best thing about the village fair is it's only four hours

my wife roped me in to this but I did get the gazebo and a two meter sign out of it o'and 3,000 A5 new flyers

1.5? - I've recovered upto 5 stops from an underexposure with the K-5.

I didn't mean 1.5 stops was the limit.... just 1.5 stops
isn't a problem.

Nice to know 5 stops is possible, although how you managed
to underexpose by 5 stops in the first place is quite amazing

good weekend, I raised 80.00 for the air ambulance and landed some good jobs out of it.

sadly the k5 didn't come out and play hoping to use it today in the studio
