  • Your depth of field is quite large on that lens for anything that isn't close. This makes it more difficult.  I sometimes find it easier to simply use the aperture/depth-of-field scale on the lens ...
  • I wasn't referring to opinions about what is real photography.  The situation might be a scientific one of recording minute detail of some project, where all they care about is what takes the ...
  • Like most absolutes, this one too is false.  If utmost image quality is paramount for a particular person or goal, then it has to come first.  The correct answer is completely dependent on the ...
  • The K3 with the Sigma 70-200  2.8 is a combo I really like.  IQ is very good and the lens is very fast and silent. Focus has been very accurate.  The trouble is finding one.  You'd likely have to ...
  • Pump some iron and you should be able to handle it.  It's not that heavy - maybe 1/2 pound more than the k-01.  I'm a bit surprised by the number of people who are scared off by these kind of ...
  • The benefit to a 2nd K3 is that if you are using if as a backup, or to have quick access to a 2nd lens setup, the controls and features are the same. The advantages to full frame is that all your ...
  • In actual use, I don't see any of your negatives for the K3 to actually be negatives.  And the resolution increase is a big deal and is very noticeable when you crop heavily or print big.  To me, ...
  • I've gotten to the place in my photography where the body doesn't mean nearly as much to me as the lenses.  Which system has the lenses you want and are likely to purchase? I have the K-50 but have ...
  • I'm probably not the norm, but "feel" doesn't enter the equation when I buy a camera.  I want features and logical access to those features, but "feel", I couldn't care less.  People complain ...
  • I would guess that accessories like grips, flashes and lenses have very large markups, making it easy to give an incentive to purchase the body, which will require, more lenses and other high ...
  • For me there is a big difference between arms length and having my elbows tucked against my body, which is far more stable. I also use a wrist strap and that helps quite a bit too.  You might want ...
  • They have a 30mm 1.4  art series that is supposed to be very good.  It's in your budget too, if you can deviate 5mm on the focal length.
  • I've never held my k-01 at arms length and have no problem with shake.  Your technique sounds like it needs some adjusting.  My complaint is that it is difficult to frame the shot on rear screens. ...
  • You made a good decision.  The price paid will quickly be forgotten.  The K3 will bring a lot to the table that you may really like.  I could pick just a couple features that are worth the money ...
  • Replied in k50 or k5
    I agree, when I made this decision, I went for the K50 because of focus peaking - invaluable feature for using manual focus.   The autofocus, is probably a bit better.  The video codecs are more ...
  • Sounds like you've been pretty unlucky. On the other hand, I've been luckier than I deserve.  I've owned more bodies and more lenses - for total of 40 years and have only sent in one - a Pentax ME ...
  • Exactly, Raw files have to be adjusted and some of the adjustments are made in batch to every photo.  It's not an issue and is in fact, a process that has to be done when you decide to shoot Raw, ...
  • The K3 autofocus will be better is extremely low light, and probably a bit faster in most situations.  On paper the K50 may not be at the top, but it's certainly not at the bottom.  In actual use, ...
  • I just shot a wedding with a K3 and K50 as a 2nd camera.  No one would be able to tell which image was taken with what camera.  They are all very good. If you're shooting a wedding, you certainly ...
  • My own guess is that it won't be at the lowest price point.  I think a traditional DSLR with  IBIS on a FF is going to keep costs higher.  On the other hand, it would have to be something extra ...
