I've done 25,137 in two and a half years on the K10D - so about 10k a year is my average (although I've used other cameras over the same period but none of them to anywhere near the same extent).

My last shot on the K10D was number 39380, I have had it nearly 2 years to the day and when I bought it the camera was 9 months old and had done just over 5000.

Cannot say what I do, but recently managed nearly 200/day over a 2 week period, but very little since

Hi Steloz, I see you use a Sigma DG 70-300 with your 20D. Do you have any issues with the autofocus. Are you happy with the lens in all respects.

Cheers from New Zealand,

Well I must admit the K10D is my first DSLR and I went mad for the first year ... I was probably doing 150 a day plus. In the last 8 months I would say around 20 a week (apart from certain events like Bournemouth Air Show).

I use Photome which is a free download and gives you a mass of information about any image.

Bought my K20d at the end of April last year for my Birthday.

Have just turned the clock for a second time and yesterday took image 21,406.

I do a lot of sports shots for the local paper and website - one cricket match last year notched up 1300 images alone!

Love it!

10,876 in 2 years and 11 months is about 10 a day, with K10D.
Most in one day was 1092, at Cosford Airshow last year - Vulcan XH558 was there so why not?
Most I ever took in a day before that was back in the '90s on 35mm with my A3. 6 rolls of 36, over 200 pics!
That was at Mildenhall Airshow, cost me over 40 for films and D&P, but worth every penny.
K10D. Tamron 18-250 F3.5/6.3, P-KA 50mm 1.4, Takumar-A 28-80mm F3.5/4.5, Vivitar 70-300mm F4.2/5.8, Teleplus MC-7 2x converter and some Cokin stuff. Also Optio E80(coz I've got big fingers!), Pentax A3 and Chinon CP-7m.

Today is yesterday's tomorrow !
