All Pentax Gear Returned
Oct 26, 2011

Sorry to announce to all that I returned my Pentax gear I bought new from BH this month.

I couldn't resolve the lenses lack of focus (on anything), the under exposure of RAW images and general softness of the kit lens. Camera would malfunction from video to stills transition by grinding and not stoping until I pulled the battery.The 55mm f/1.4 SDM would back focus and focus would often not be found anywhere. Video was choppy and unusable. Everything about the camera is so desirable, except the images.

i'm going to add to my Lumix system and/or invest in Nikon, in which I've enjoyed the D300 in the past. I wanted to love this system because it fits my uses so well, but it can't take a picture.
Still looking for my next right thing.
