    Thanks for sharing.

    It is about finding that connection. I have always been connected to Nikon since my family has been using Nikon since the beginning of time. We had some Contax , Pentax SLRs, and who can forget the first ever AF camera Minolta 7000. We had those, some were sold some were given away. But the Nikons were always there, came in to our family and never left. We are not fan boys btw. We also have some classic models from other brands that never really left us since they came in. Including a Contax RF.

    Pentax is first to have the Autofocus SLR in Market model is ME-F, very similar to ME-Super, My cousin have thsi camera when it was just on the market

    extracted from wikipedia
    The Pentax ME-F, which used focus sensors in the camera body coupled with a motorized lens, became the first autofocus 35 mm SLR in 1981.

    The Pentax ME-F have the first focus sensor in a SLR. But only had one single lens that is AF with in-lens motor, and it was never designed as a fully AF system. Apart from that single lens, all you get is just a focus confirmation with other lenses. Not a true full AF SLR system if you ask me. But I think it paved the way for other AF cameras. It took 4 more years before Minolta came out with Full electronic AF lens mount SLR system. It pretty much rocked the world.

    I still remember the day my dad brought the 7000 home. Showed me this wonderful thing called autofocus SLR. It was hella loud compared to today's standards. But at that time, I felt it was magic... I spent many days just taking the cam out of my dad's dry boxes just to half press the shutter to watch the lens focus ring turn....

    From:
    http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography...um7k/index.htm

    in 1981, Pentax drew the first blood by introduced a camera called Pentax ME-F which carried a focus assist feature, it was a manual precursor to autofocus technology where, when subject is in focus, a focus confirmation LED light will grow and supplemented by audible confirmation. A dedicated SMCP-AF 35-70mm Zoom with an internal motor inside was also being designed for this camera. Overall, you can claimed Pentax has introduced the first autofocus SLR employing a TTL autofocus sensor.

    However, a relatively low profile Minolta rocked the entire photographic community in January 1985 with a new breed of AF camera which has a revolutionary concept that made it differed from other "mainstream industrial design" adopted by other makers. "New" because there were two major factors of which one of them has a great impact to the existing Minolta users - the Company decided to drop support for the older MC/MD mount and replaced with an fully electronic lens mount with no backward compatibility. But a more important element is, the Maxxum 7000 AF SLR camera was the first true system AF SLR with an body integrated AF design with a host of new AF lenses built around the camera.

    But you certainly can take the photos and do the panorama later with a good program like photoshop.



    As mentioned before. Learn about your camera. Take more photos and join the outings.

    Go for the outings. The one for Oct is happening soon. Don't even need to tell ppl that you are Dormant (in case ppl you )
    The Pentaxians outings are always fun, friendly and informative. You yourself have read through at least one of the outing threads, so you know they are a supportive bunch.

    Yes, you may have started out wanting a nice big necklace to hang around the neck which is a fashionable thing to do nowadays, but grow beyond that and show that you know how to use it too.
    Pentaxians are a very friendly bunch. We have young kids and old seniors too. I joined them sometimes and am very impressed by the family culture. Who knows...you might make some memorable friends. Fengwei...where are you?

    This is a good idea. i usually do the opposite, i often just gaffer tape the brand on my camera so the brand doesn't matter. It does not exist in the final image, except in the Exif file.

    Good decision

    I think it's time to close this thread, since we already know the answer

    When bought my A350, the user of 'other brand' tell me that I made a bad decision and they predict that next year (2009) Sony will withdraw from their DSLR business
    But now?

    In general, those that feel threatened by superior technology will try to bring you down.

    I guess that's why everyone tells me I should sell my Olympus ASAP

    And anyway people who don't know much are always bound to talk crap. When I was buying my camera, everyone told me you can only take nice photos with Canon or Nikon. I was quite tempted to tell some of them... "your photos nice meh???"

    Yup, I hear that all the time too. Even people who sell their P, O or S system to buy C and N then all of a sudden feel that their pictures are now much better (they were not...). It's psychological, really.
