Just about half an hour ago I was at the store and tried out the EOS 20D with a Tamron SP AF 28-75 mm F2,8 lense
I was very close to just buying it on the spot.
I took a picture of the wall behind the counter. Just some stupid piece of turqoise wall with some glass doors and some lights mounted on it. Of course I only saw the result on the small tft on the back, but it looked just so brilliant even then. The colors were clear. The light inside the store isn’t that good and oh whow. What a gorgeous stupid piece of wall.
Additionally the camera is ultra-fast.
Enter random customer: “Is that an EOS20D? Yes? Buy it!”
Only negative point: these damn slr cameras are big and heavy. Or is that a plus point?
Anyway, I’ll really have to force myself to wait another couple days to go to another place to try out the Nikon and get some owner of a Pentax SLR over here to compare that ….
PS: here‘s a review of the lense.
