  • I dont understand how a firmware or shutter problem could move the plastic lock on the SD card. Maybe you moved it and were not aware of the move, and this started the mirror flap?
  • For manual focusing, I use the Pentax eyecup magnifier, it clips on the viewfinder in place of the rubber eyepiece, easy to put on or remove, and it really helps (around 30 £/30€ at Amazon): PENTAX ...
  • I have a K30. In low light, AF is always slower and can hesitate. The AF assist lamp helps. I dont think you will improve AF speed by changing the lens on K30. K3 or K5-II or K-S2 are said to focus ...
  • 17-70, my son bought it bundled with a K5 in 2011. Works fine, no failures, used it yesterday and it is still on my K30 today, because of its fantastic IQ, but my most used lens up to now is the DA ...
  • My SDM is the DA 17-70. Bought by my son in 2011 in bundle with a K5. Works fine. By the way, I have 7 other DA or FA lenses, which I still use (see my gear list), 5 bought new and two second hand ...
  • Replied in K-50 Set Up
    I have been using the DA 18-135 WR for over a year on my K30 (almost same specs as K50), and it has been my favorite for travel up to now (see some samples in my flickr or DPR galleries). It is a ...
  • Nice shots. And I am pleased to see that an experimented photographer like you, with great skills, shoots JPEG. I also guess that for action scenes like these, a high burst rate is the priority, ...
  • I have the Pentax 17-70 f4 SDM and I like it . It is a very sharp lens , with excellent colour rendition and contrast, and focuses very fast, with nice bokeh; see the test at Imaging resource: http ...
  • Well, congratulations, there is no need to add any new lens to your collection of DA limiteds primes, I think there are no better lenses around for sale. Sorry for my previous mail, but of course I ...
  • To GianLuca: Looking at your profile, it looks like you are a long time pentaxist, with many legacy M or A prime lenses (=manual focus). And no modern FA or DA lenses. These legacy lenses are fun ...
  • IMO, with camera models changing every 2 years, and often a minor upgrade in-between, you better buy what suits you today: it will anyway become out-fashioned in 4 or 5 years. Which doesnt means ...
  • I dont understand people complaining about a camera manufacturer offering coloured bodies: nobody forces them to buy it, there is always a classic black offering. And even Canon offers white ...
  • Commented on Hands-on with the Pentax K-3 II article

    The K-S2 has articulating/tilting/swiveling screen and Wifi remote control. So ther is a weather resistant Pentax that can suits your requirements, and it has been awarded by TIPA as "best advanced...

    No wonder why jpino79 doesnt like the Pentax limited lenses. He also wrote he despised Leica gear and Apple electronics.
    I suppose he also despise Porsche or Audi cars, or Rolex watches, all these...

    To jpino79:
    Why would Ricoh have introduced 2 big FF K-mount high grade expensive lenses if the Pentax FF was not on its way for next fall?

  • Commented on Hands-on with the Pentax K-3 II article

    To jpino79
    Through all your activity in these DPR forums, you certainly know that a Pentax FF will come next fall.
    So what is the use of complaining you would like to have FF IQ in an APS-C camera?

  • Commented on Hands-on with the Pentax K-3 II article

    There is also a Pentax pocket flash, the AF201FG, with roughly the same specs and price, + it is WR

  • Most users consider the DA21 ltd is one of the best lenses you can buy, even though it is only f3.2 and doesnt give best resolution on test charts. But in real life shooting, it delivers fantastic ...
