Yeah, if you think it would be beneficial to have it. I don't see it being handy to have if you aren't an event shooter though.
You shoot so much outdoor stuff, maybe think about a set of Grad ND's or other filters?

Also, the K20D is going to be much bigger than your 100D, you might want to hold it before you make the jump to a grip.

iunno
10-15-2008, 01:14 PM
word, thanks dude. i see that it weighs like 14lbs more.

Well, I may have exaggerated but when I went from my *istDL to the K10D I noticed the size difference.

Weight (inc. batteries) 660 g (23.3 oz) 800 g (28.2 oz)
Dimensions 129 x 93 x 70 mm (5.1 x 3.7 x 2.8 in) 142 x 101 x 70 mm (5.6 x 4 x 2.8 in)

blue: k100d

red: k20d

:lol:

*ist DL Dimensions - (4.9 x 3.6 x 2.6 in)
Weight (loaded) 565 g (1.3 lb)

Pretty close, but it felt like a much beefier upgrade.

It really doesn't matter, you will love that camera.

iunno
10-16-2008, 08:04 PM
well, i will be getting $273 in 60 days.

plus, as soon as i can get rid of my k100d for ~$350 that puts the total price of the k20d down even further

LateApex
10-16-2008, 08:11 PM

I upgraded to a heavier body (larger, too), and I found it to be nicer when shooting. I feel like I hold it steadier, and I'd totally use the new camera as a weapon if I needed to. :lol:

i called this afternoon and left a dickish voicemail directly on some girl's line :lol:

we'll see if i get a call back.

moral of the story: don't buy **** from vendors that have ok reviews and feedback

i've learned my lesson and won't go through that BS again

iunno

http://www.newschoolofphotography.com/forum/showthread.php?t=10517

:daniel:


i should've known to buy a $900 body from a vendor that has "OK" reviews. i won an auction on Ebay on 10/15/08 at 8:32am, sent 3 e-mails before i finally got a reply (the following saturday) saying the order has been processed, i'll receive a tracking number and if i leave them POSITIVE feedback within the next 12 hours (their shipping window) they'd insure it for free.

COOL! so i did and didn't receive a confirmation e-mail...sent 2 more e-mails and finally got a call back on monday 10/20/08 from a lady saying the package will "FOR SURE be there by thursday or friday, it's 2-3 days to get there" as i stressed my concern for being out of town this weekend and not wanting it to sit at the mailboxes in my apartments.

i called last night when the package didn't show up, called again this morning and talked to the same lady (i had her extension, lolz). she said "we had a half day on blah blah blah and it wasn't shipped out, it's in our warehouse still"

:unamused: :mad: :huh:

"are you ****ing kidding me? you guys are HORRIBLE, etc etc etc"

so after being put on hold for 10 minutes, she comes back and says they're shipping it overnight (which will cost them at least $40, lolz) and it WILL be here tomorrow and that there WILL be a confirmation/tracking e-mail sent (remember, i NEVER got one in the first place) to me today, but to call in the morning if i don't get one. :huh:

so, i guess it'll be here tomorrow but if i have to sit around and ****ing wait all night (i'm supposed to be going to portland for my friends' last show) i will be super pissed.

oh well, regardless...
