  • For your 8mm lens, your EXIF data is reporting a focal length of 35mm. You'll want to make sure you set the focal length properly if you are using the in-body shake reduction since entering the...

  • Here's another, shot with an FA 100mm Macro.  It doesn't have as much magnification as the DA* 60-250mm, but it makes up for it in closer focusing. It's probably a bit sharper too :)
  • Thanks guys. Here's another... this one's been in the pollen :)
  • These guys are difficult subjects as even when they are perched, they rarely remain still. Photographed using the IR remote with a K-3 and DA*60-250mm lens in focus priority mode with all 27 point...

  • Replied in Lens for macro
    I'd recommend you start with the Pentax FA 50mm F2.8 Macro.  You can find it used around $300 or so, and it is an exceedingly sharp lens.  It's 75mm equivalent focal length for cropped sensor also...
  • Yes, you can turn off the rear screen and the light on the top LCD screen, which I do as a matter of course when I get a new camera.  I just set up my K-3 this way.  I don't want any lights on my...
  • Replied in Tripods
    The proper use of a tripod will get you photos that are impossible handheld. If you are looking for the best image quality (and if you bought a K-3, I would assume you are), then a tripod is...
  • If you are looking for a cheaper alternative to the RRS L bracket, check out this one  on Amazon. I am using it right now on my K-3 and have no complaints. For $39 it is well-made and functional.
  • Replied in New K3 users
    To me it seems that the viewfinder optics, especially the eyepiece, is of slightly higher quality than on the K-5.  The eyepiece lens is now round, and I find that it appears a little sharper and...

  • Created discussions K-3 macro studio shot
    K-3 with FA 50mm macro, ISO 100, 1/10 sec @ F8.  I really like the sharpness of this sensor with no AA filter. Here's a 100% crop:
  • My K-3 just shipped today from Adorama.  Should be here (in California) by Friday.
  • From Wikipedia: There are several unlucky numbers in Japanese. Traditionally, 4 and 9 are unlucky. Four is sometimes pronounced shi, which is also the word for death.[4] Nine is also sometimes...
