  • My K-01 is on the latest firmware. I recently shot some video using the 18-55mm AL II lens. The quality and frame rate were set at the highest levels. Locale was indoors, and there was just about ...
  • I have used the K-500 as well as the K-30 (proxy for K-50). The focus point indicators are something that I really miss when I use the K-500. For that reason alone I would opt for the K-50. Thanks, ...

  • I have both the K-30 and the K-500. I use both with leather grips rather than the traditional camera straps. While the K-30 looks more aggressive, I find the K-500 (and hence the K-50) easier to ...
  • I have had a K-500 for 10 months now. Got it for a very good price along with the 18-55 and 50-200 lenses. Overall, very pleased with my purchase. Yesterday landed a K-30 locally on craigslist. I ...

  • If so, which focusing screen did you use? I have looked at both katzeye and focusingscreens.com and they do not appear to sell one made specifically for the K-50/K-500. I am looking for a focusing ...

  • Ron, I will try what you have suggested. BTW, can you comment on my other question about the very different shutter speed when I switch from manual to auto focus on the camera? Focal length, ...
  • Recently acquired a used Tamron 24-135mm lens. One thing I am noticing is that the pictures taken with auto focus are not turning out sharp. But the odd thing is that when I use manual focus, I ...
