Back in 2017 I discovered a game changing digital camera, the Pentax K10D. Its colour output, plus general handling and pleasure to use, meant I never looked back at the very capable and adaptable, but ultimately soulless (in body, and in the final image) Sony NEX 3N I had on heavy rotation with manual lenses… Continue reading You Can’t Go Home Again, Can You?
