New K5

There are the occasional times when you have to give exceptional thanks to the Wife, and this is one of those times. " weeks ago I was charging the battery in the same place as always. The 'Dear Wife' knocked the camera, (K7 had for nearly 3 years), off onto the floor and completely destroyed its capability to function on either focus or screen display.

With 2 simple phone calls to my Insurance Company, (House and Contents), they are replacing with a Brand Spanking K5.

THANKS my love.........

You could hire her out for this kind of thing
K10D, K5 plus plenty of clueless enthusiasm.

Cheers Tom, luckily Lynne has little interest in owning one herself thank goodness, but bless her for knocking the K7 off!

My wife dropped the k200 on the pavement - (un?)fortunately there was no damage...

Still upgraded to a k5 though
