  • Hello again John_A_G Thanks for the links. With my Pentax K5 I use this: Now the use of a tele-lens works also, because you can not always take the pictures on the skateboard-area, but of cause I ...
  • Hello John_A_G I think you and I think in the same way...fast lens are expensive. For taking ballet pictures I bought a FA*80-200mm...I'm a hobby photographer, but I was willing to pay that much ...
  • Hello again sgtsween Thanks for sharing your own handling with the DA 55-300. Now there are other very fast AF lens, like the FA* 28-70 f2.8. I mentioned the 100mm macro, because I thought there ...
  • Hello sgtsween It's all relative, with what I mean if the AF speed of a lens is fast enough for a sport picture depends so much with the distance changes you have . For example the FA 100 macro ...
  • Replied in New flash
    Hello johnami You already got good answers, so my point is buy not only a flash, buy also some accessories for it. With a digital camera it's a joy to use a flash. Learning by doing is much easier ...
  • Hello OrdinarilyInordinate The D5200 has a good AF module, but on the other hand Nikon economise the AF motor, parts of the flash functions (like HSS) and a second wheel. I really would miss the ...
  • Hello Just for fun: it all depends how big the handshake is, and how you can reduce it for to use longer focal lens with low shutter speeds and SR: A museum picture (no tripod allowed). I put the ...
  • Do you think here in FF focal length or do you mean the APS-C focal length. I ask because for me the SR works good with a 18mm lens (which would be a 27mm focal length in FF) and it still works ...
  • Hello again Maybe it's already mentioned in this thread, but I think your camera is ok, because you wrote that you have no problems with the other lens you use. So for example when you have the SR ...
  • Hello This rule works so long you don't make a big crop out of your picture, or look at pixel level. I mean when we are cropping, it's the same as if we would use an other focal length, therefore ...
  • Hello Holger Bargen I don't know the reaction time of the Pentax SR. Therefore this is only theoretical With a shutter speed of 1/1000 sec the picture is taken in 1 ms. Now for example when the SR ...
  • Hello brandrx That's a nice overview about what's new in the K3 ! Thanks for posting this link. best regards  kikivrany
  • Hello cabo I'm a K5 user, therefor I have not much own experience with the K3, but nothingless: Maybe your friend should try out a K3 in a shop with it's own lens. If your friend lives in Germany: ...
  • Commented on Orchid in blue in the Macro - Plant(s) challenge

  • Hello MightyMike That kind of duplicating the contours in the bokeh area, which the lens produce, looks really well for this picture. It's a wonderful picture best regards  kikivrany

    Hello Nicols
    Manny thanks!
    The flash light from below gave this mix of shine through and shine on the the surface of the petals. It also made the shadows in the petals.
    best regards kikivrany

  • Hello yardcoyote I find the TAv mode terrific. Since the cameras have good ISO ranges, it's for me the best mode where I can easiely controll and adjust the triple (aperture/shutter speed/ISO) for ...
