  • I may be pointing out the obvious, but did you touch the LV button on the screen?
  • I trained myself to use it, and it works well. The K5 was positioned in a way that I kept hitting the green button. The K3 is a matter of rolling my thumb up. It makes focusing and shooting two ...
  • 150-500 Sigma HSM lens focuses, but the fstop and focal length are not corrected.
  • How different is this from spot metering and attaching the metering to the focus point?

    Great shots. Mine will be here probably tuesday, but my DA*300 is in for service for a little while yet. From what I've seen there is little degradation in iq, and the focus works as well as the ...
  • Indeed. I'm looking forward to getting mine, probably tomorrow. It seems to work very well as a simple tether, and is eminently hackable, so we will see dozens of apps in very short order. I ...
  • What's wrong with the AF and flash on the K3? Both work well.

    I'll second that. The K3 with the DA*300 is very very satisfying. I found that lens on the K5 an exercise in frustration. When it worked, the shots were amazing, but it was so inconsistent with focus.
  • This. I'm throwing away shots taken with the K3 that I would have kept with the K5 because they were as good as they could be. Movement blur is far more apparent. The K5 was purposely blurred, ...
  • The time it takes to calibrate is very close. I got out my K5 to compare, and the difference is very small, with maybe a slight advantage to the K3. I'm judging by when the hand icon is ...
