Thanks for viewing David - indeed a Pentax/Contax AF and IS mix would be a wonderful asset - will they dare to cross those lines? Only time will tell.

Let me know what you think about it.G'mornin' Philippe!Amazing! I had only looked at the smaller version, and it is, as I said, a shot in lovely light!In the large size you can easily see the skin detail. This only enhances a bucolic scene ... the contrast between the "fuzzy" world of mist and the sharp, detailed world of the cows adds substantially to the shot!Well done, you!When I first used Rose's new Pentax k10D, I was truly amazed at the capabilities that IS adds to a camera. I was shooting photos of our cat at 1/15th, hand held, in which you could see every hair.What I like about the K10D is that the IS is in the body, not the lens. Thus, Rose's old lenses are instantly upgraded. If Leica add IS to the R10, I hope they follow the Pentax route ... I'd like my old 90 Summicron to have IS!!!!Cheers! ---PS: Geography : If anyone likes Tour de France, they'll have heard of La Mongie which is a stone throw from there.A few years ago, when the Tour de France suffered the great drug scandals, over here it quickly became known as the "Tour de Farce"! ;-)--- David Young, Logan Lake, CANADA Wildlife Photographs: http://www.telyt.com/ Personal Web-pages: http://www3.telus.net/~telyt Stock Photography at: http://tinyurl.com/2amll4 ------ Unsubscribe or change to/from Digest Mode at: http://www3.telus.net/~telyt/lrflex.htm Archives are at: http://www.freelists.org/archives/leicareflex/
