math guy's recent activity

  • Camera in very good condition, no problems. Comes with lens, hood, front and rear lens caps, body cap, original camera box, user manual, and new Pentax O-ST132 strap (not the used strap shown in ...
  • Interesting thread, as I've considered this very thing. For now I have not yet added and ultrawide lens to my collection, mainly because I can get very good results stitching. Like you, I LOVE the ...
  • I think traditionally the point was that moon shots could follow the Sunny 16 rule since the moon is reflecting full sunlight. This is often counter-intuitive since we tend to shoot the moon at ...
  • I just purchased the K-50 two-lens kit in order to get a couple of WR lenses to go with my new K-3 and to have a nice second body. I wavered between the two-lens kit, the 18-135, and the body plus ...
  • Replied in field results
    Today the kids had a flag football "mini-camp." It gave me a chance to try out the 50-200. A little background first... I've been the league photographer for the past three years. The first year I ...
  • Interesting. I never knew about photography day, but yesterday would definitely rank as my best photography day ever, at least with respect to equipment. I received two new cameras in the mail -- ...
  • That makes a lot of sense. Thanks.
  • To be honest, I really hadn't considered those... wasn't really familiar with them until now. I've already got my WR lenses now, but just out of curiosity, how durable are those sleeves? If ...
  • Yeah, I saw that in the user guide. I don't think that was on the K-x. Does that optimize for the best aperture for that particular lens based on testing data? I hardly ever used P mode on the K-x, ...
  • The K-50 arrived today. I haven't had time to do a lot of shooting with it so far, but the few shots I tried with the 50-200 lead me to believe I'll be happy with it. It's definitely not a Ltd, ...
  • The white K-50 came in the mail today, and I'm very glad I went with white -- it looks even better in person than online. The funny thing is that my K-3 also came today, and in the little bit of ...
  • Replied in white hood?
    I found the answer to my own question... the kit doesn't include hoods. I found cheap ones on eBay, and now I'm wondering how the white one would look. I don't recall ever seeing a white hood on a ...
  • Thanks to all for the input! It was really a tough call for me. The simplicity of the 18-135 was very attractive, and the better IQ of the 55-300 was also -- especially at the $267 price point. But ...
  • The K-x didn't let you -- that was the big knock on it at the time. But I'm pretty sure Pentax added it back in the K-r and all subsequent models.
  • Replied in white K-50?
    Thanks. That's what I was hoping to hear. Yeah, me too. The only color I'd like better is black/yellow, but B&H doesn't sell that kit. Mainly I like the idea of having a different color for the ...
  • Replied in the K-50
    I can only speak for myself, but I'm about to buy the K-50 two-lens kit rather than the K-S1 because it is WR for about the same price. Plus, I personally think the LEDs on the grip look silly.
  • NEVER! I love that lens!!!
  • Created questions white K-50?
    Does anyone have a white K-50 or K-30? I just bought a K-3 and was planning to keep my K-x as a second body. But since I needed a couple of WR lenses for rainy-day shooting, I think I've decided to ...
  • I just ran the numbers, and even with the current deal on the 55-300, I'd be paying almost $160 more to get the K-50/18-55/55-300 compared to the K-50/18-55/50-200. Still not a bad deal, but I'm ...
  • Point well taken. It would appear they can produce pretty good images in the hands of a capable photographer. I can get them both along with a new K-50 (as a second body -- selling the K-x now) ...
