  • -I started with the ist*D   enjoyed it but never looked back once I got the K20. The handling,  review on screen and IQ made it easy to move on. Now I have the K5ii. The jump didn't seem as big in ...
  • Okay, I checked the batteries with a voltmeter and they both tested good. I had taken off my BG-4 for the Christmas trip to travel lighter and decided to try a battery in it (or some AA) to see if ...
  • In this remote area I don't know of anyone with a K5 charger... since one of the batteries showed full power until I took it out, replaced it with the "bad" battery, and then put it back in (less ...
  • Thanks to the two responses I made another visual inspection of the battery compartment.  There are 3 contacts on the battery but in the compartment where the middle contact would be there is only ...
  • Created questions Battery problem with K5II
    While in Arizona on Christmas vacation I ran one battery down.  While I used my backup battery I recharged the depleted one.  When I put the first battery back in the camera... NOTHING!  I figured ...
  • Thanks to all of you for the help.  Thanks to britcam's pictures I have gotten really excited about the Sigma 8-16.  Was already to pull the trigger today and I couldn't find it listed in a Pentax ...
  • Thanks for the replies and apologies for the delay in responding.  I posted and went to sleep.  Today has been busy and just got back to check on responses.  I have followed the advice of lookiing ...
  • Created questions Which wide-angle to buy?
    LBA is striking and I think I need to go wider.  Currently my widest option is the DA* 16-50 with my K5II. I know the Pentax DA 12-24 was rated best in class when it came out by Pop Photo.  They ...
  • The program line setting has the camera (while in P mode) set the initial shutter speed and aperture according to your selected priority  (Higher shutter speed, more  or less depth of field  or my ...
  • Thanks, I do understand what you are saying there. K20 I used dng for raw but mostly did use jpeg so I would spend more time taking pictures than processing. Too lazy I guess. -- Having fun with ...
  • Odd color, but since it is on the glasses could it be a reflection of something else in the room?
  • Created questions Favorite K5II Settings?
    I'm trying to get used to my new K5II and wondered if some of you have some favorite "tweaks" you have preset on K5? I have already observed that on my copy (at least) the pictures tend to run ...
  • Sorry I didn't answer indivicually all the way but all great reminders and advice.  Now I am just looking forward to getting the camera out of the box... performing the suggested trials and then ...
  • That sounds very easy and clear.  Thanks -- Having fun with Pentax since 1978
  • Thanks, I guess always the ultimate test is "does it work for you."   I know you have had a lot of gear so it is great to here it has all been good.
  • My K5-II and 18-135 is on the way.  If you have identified a bad copy... or got a great copy and identified it.  Are there some quick checks I should run to more easily know if I have a keeper or ...
  • Wrote a message but it disappeared, maybe too long. Thanks for the help.  They are all good thoughts.  My intereset in the BG-4 was more for convenience instead of battery life, I rarely have to ...
