I'll see how it performs over the next month or so. Since it's removable, I'm more willing to experiment on it.I have had one for a while. I am quite impressed with it’s design, but like yourself, I would have preferred a deeper grip. I have thought about attaching a shaped piece of plastic or hardwood to the existing grip. applying Sugru, covering with Gun Grip tape. But so far have not. Used in combination with a long thumb grip and PD small wrist strap/anchor combo.
I am still waiting for this to be delivered. The art supply place shipped it the same day I ordered it (10/13/2020). Tracking shows it disappeared when UPS was to transfer it to the Postal Service for final delivery, early on the morning of October 15th. Postal Service tracking shows they are still waiting for the package. I have contacted the art supply place about this twice. The first time I contacted them they told me it was too soon, and that I should wait until two weeks after I placed the order to contact them about the missing shipment. I jumped the gun a bit and contacted them on Monday (10/26). They told me they would ship a replacement. I have seen no indication that they have actually shipped a replacement.I just bought a 17" x 20" picture frame to use with an 11" x 14" photo. Now all I have to do is cut the mat board, and get a 17" x 20" sheet of glass.
This forum needs to know......how much?Boy, oh boy! I picked up my Pentax *istDL today.
And if I didn't know better, I'd think that I bought it from myself! Being a certified original packaging freak that I am. Everything but the original delivery of the 4 AA batteries was there, down to the original plastic bags.
Instead of the 4 AAs I got six pieces of rechargeable CR-V3 batteries. Of course I have chargers for both types of these things. The four I checked are the smart type with three contact points.
I haven't checked the shutter actuations yet, but I have no reason to believe that they aren't 1110 as stated. Which means I have to think long and hard about what I'm gonna shoot with the one remaining shutter actuation available to me, to get it up to 1111 actuations.
After that, it's the glass display case, together with one of my 18-55 mm kit lenses. Probably the one I got with my K100D Super. It's a similar vintage, and should have had a similar number of shutter actuations behind its bayonet...
In conclusion, I've bought less mint cameras new, in original shrink wrap packaging, from camera stores.
And I'll also have to buy a display case. But I'll probably pay for that by moving some of my Sega TV-games. Or something...
