  • Replied in K3 or K3ii
    I have been considering upgrading for some time, not becasue I dont like my K-30, it has just been almost 3 years and I am urning for a pro body. I am interested to see how the K-3II looks before ...
  • Doesn't the Nikon D810 have an onboard flash ? I would consider that to be a pro body and the K-3 is semi-pro at best. I wish they could have included al things to everyone and wonder how many will ...
  • Replied in Maybe
    I was thinking the same thing, and would not be surprised. But the K-3II is to be shipping in May and the FF is not expected til October.
  • From what I have read from the new FF lens evaluators, who also has enough to know about the specs of the FF camera, this is going to be a Pro level camera at an APSC price. Obviously we will see ...
  • I have the 18-55WR, which is actually a really good lens for being a kit lens, read Pentax Forum to see a review of this lens, a 50-200 and a Tammy 18-200. First things first, if it was me, I would ...
  • FF1, not K-FF1 ? Does the FF have the new lens included in kit for the $1900 price ?
  • No Dean, the K-30 has a pentaprism. I think all Pentax cameras from the K-30 on have had pentaprism.
  • Yeah, I was the same when I first got my KX. I saw dust, thought I would take out the screen, can't be too hard, and I took it out. Well, it wasn't hard but I just barely scraped a fingernail ...
  • I have the 18-55WR and feel that it is a much underappreciated lens for a "Kit" lens. I am quite happy with it. The price is right too. :) If it were me, I would condirer the 18-50 for the DC ...
  • Yes, it seems similar in ways to my K-30. Sometimes it hits focus rather quickly and accurately when I am surprised that it did it. Just must be a light/color combination that doesn't work well in ...
  • Wow, I am sure that took alot of work. Did you do this to removve fungus and haze ? I have seen a couple of EBay lenses that are very cheap due to fungus and I have debated to take a chance and ...
  • I had a K-X preveiously and now have a K-30. I use the AA asapter 90% of the time even though I do have a lithium. It may be a little heavier but the Eneloops  work better to me.
  • Replied in K5 used or....
    I would look for a K-5IIS instead of a K-5. The K-5 was a great camera in it's day but it was upgraded to a K-5II/S for a reason.
  • Impressive
  • Though not WR, I have a Metz 52 for my K-30 and it is a great flash, espesially for the price.
  • Replied in Wedding 16-85
    Great shots Dean. I have been thinking about picking up this lens and your shots took me over the top to get it. Thorougly impressed.
  • I have not had a K-S2 but I do and have had a K-30 for almost 3 years and am still throughly impressed with my camera. It has the Sony 16MP which has been a legend among the K-5XX. K-01 and the ...
  • Replied in Spring
    Nice shot. :)
  • These two cameras are quite different, regardless of MP. The 5500 would be a mid-level at best and I would consider it in line with a K-30/50 in stills. I think that the Pentax in that regard is ...
  • Hmmm....i dont understand the negativity here. There is just exposure bracketed here and then processed in camera, There is a reason why bracketing is available in camera since the camera is ...
