  • Miles, The moderators would dump me if I said what I really felt about the junque manual with the K3.
  • Yvon Bourque has turned out a slew of Pentax manuals over the years. I am not happy with the PDF format he's now using, so I haven't ordered mine yet, but I will. I carried his K20D manual with me ...
  • Super shots. I've been trying to get some keepers of our local hummingbirds--not trying too hard with a bum knee--without much success.
  • Same for me. I've never dreamed of a Pentax digital FF. I am delighted with my new K3, the little chance I've had to use it.
  • I've had the Tamron 17-50 for several years now, only recently transferring it to the K3 where it seems to be even sharper than with my K20D. It's the sharpest lens I've ever owned.
  • The K3 arrived in good time--Wednesday, 6/18. Unfortunately, I'm semi-laid up--on my way to a VA appointment in a few minutes to check a blood clot in my right femoral artery--and couldn't do any ...
  • Replied in A Few Hummers
    Very, very nice. Better than those I shot a couple days ago: my excuse was that it was my first attempt. I expect mine will improve. Yours don't need to.
  • I wonder at times about the difficulty autofocus presents some of us. I know, early on, when I was using 35mm Minolta gear for a short time--very short--I had a devil of a time getting stationary ...
  • It may be a bit of time before I get to use the K3. Evidently, my knee replacement surgery is going sour--eight months after the surgery! Very stiff, painful knees are not the hot set-up for ...
  • Commented on Review: Ona Lima camera strap article

    A friend introduced me to the term "never-ready cases" for generic '60s camera cases. I've got very light brassing now around the sling attachments on my K20D, but my ancient Canon F1 had really...

  • Commented on Review: Ona Lima camera strap article

    I use the OpTech version: my reasoning was made simple because even the super comfortable OpTech neck straps bother the bone spurs in the back of my neck. The shoulder straps reduce the strain by a...

  • A short while ago, I ordered a K3, body only, through Amazon. $1024.50. I spent some time this afternoon with the K20D I've had for years. It will soon become my back-up camera. I also ordered two ...
  • Kent, I should have thought of that, but I'm glad I waited to buy until now. It will be both cheaper and faster to get two 32GB cards than two 64s. Thanks.

    The photographer may not be Weston, but he, or she, has brought in a moderately costly set-up, scheduled and lined...
