  • Beg steal or borrow a K-3 for a couple of days and you'll know what I mean. I bought the K-3 last November and then a K-5IIs at Christmas time. The only time I've used the K5IIs seriously was when ...
  • Replied in new camera
    Nope. Get the K-3.
  • Replied in Try this -------
    Here ya go, Tom (about 3/4 way down the page) - the english version starts on page 136:- http://www.metz.de//en/service-support/instruction-manuals/flash-units/mecablitz.html
  • I am a zoom kind of person and I wish the K-3 came in a version with a Nikon lens mount. I really do love my K-3 - it's the most wonderful camera to use - and I've used a few over the years. But ...
  • I should say up front that I'm a zoom shooter. The FA24-90 is quite a good lens - now only available 2nd hand of course and in excellent condition probably around the $300 mark. The DA18-135 is ...
  • I use the 60-250 with the K-3 to shoot American Football (Gridiron). It is very fast to focus - in fact I have no trouble using it in AF-C and medium for the FPS setting. It keeps up with the ...
  • The K-3 images are every bit as sharp and sharper than the K5IIs files. I have both cameras. While they can both render excellent images for normal size prints (or screen display) the K-3 images ...
  • I have never seen the sense in paying big bucks for a lens then putting a cheaper piece of glass in front of it. And I NEVER use a lens without a hood - so that offers all the protection needed. ...
  • I think #4 is pretty special (self portrait?) - the symmetry, lighting, star spangled sky - yes, I like it very much.
  • in what is obviously very challenging light. This is probably some of the most difficult birding situations in which to photograph. Well, apart from trying to capture small passerines in poor light.
  • Replied in Fall and 55mm
    No - it's just that your post isn't gear-centric enough. If you want a good response, make a disparaging remark about the lens or compare it unfavourably with a Nikon lens. Or better still, work ...
  • Rubbish! The K-5 and K-5IIs are two different animals. Again, rubbish! Have you actually owned or used both of these cameras with that lens? You go for it, mate! And if you're wondering - it's your ...
  • on the outskirts of the Metro area. Sydney is a very "wooded" city - many trees throughout the suburbs and many nice parks. In my yard I can see 4 or 5 species of Cockatoo most days as well as ...
  • I feed a variety of birds most days - seed for the cockatoos, a protein-nectar powder for the lorikeets and mince meat (ground beef) for the magpies. Cockatoo in Bottlebrush Tree Australian Magpie ...
  • I don't believe that was ever actually proven but some made that assertion. I believe there was an initial problem with some "'togs" having cameras that may have had a sticky sensor IS mechanism. ...
  • Get the K-3. I moved to the K-3 from the K-5. At first I wasn't overly enamoured of the image quality of the K-3. When the K-5IIs dropped to $900 here in Australia I decided to grab one in case I ...
  • I went from the K20D to the K-5 and then to the K-3. After using the K-3 I wouldn't go back to the K20D for any reason. The K20D was a great camera when I bought it but the K-3 is superior in ...
  • Yes, some very nice shots there - classic portraits. Viewed at full size there's a lot of definition and detail. You should be pleased with your day out.
  • When I got my K-3 I immediately bought 2 x Sandisk Extreme Pro 16Gb cards. Shooting my son's football games in medium burst mode I never have to wait to take shots, even when using RAW+JPG. The ...
