Hi, I currently have a midrange zoom and a long zoom for my K-3. The long zoom performs just fine. The midrange zoom seems to have problems with autofocus, and I hear that this is a common problem when people mount non-Pentax lenses on Pentax cameras. Can anyone recommend some midrange zooms for the K-3 that do *not* have focusing problems and produce good quality images? Some I am considering are below. Only some of these have reviews on DXOMark. 1. Pentax smc DA 18-270mm F3.5-6.3 ED SDM 2....

Hi, I am thinking of changing out my standard zoom.  I have the Sigma 24-70mm HSM which is a quality lens but it is so heavy, 790g. It can occasionally have a wobble on its anti-shake performance too. I had it checked out and there is nothing wrong with the lens. I would like to get something a bit lighter and with a wider angle than 24mm.  The 16-85mm WR would do this well and looks on paper to be a better lens than the other possible. that is the 18-135mm WR.

I am not a technical guy with respect to camera & lens equipment, and have just purchased a K-3 with the 18-135mm WR & 55-300mm WR lenses & a 1.4x TC. I am doing some "desktop experimenting" with these and a Polaroid 500D close-up lens, and find that the listed spec for minimum focusing distance on the 18-135mm is shown at .4m or ~16". I get a min. distance of ~7.5" at 18mm, and ~9.5" at 135mm with the bare lens. What am I missing? Thanks. CraigK

Hi,I am thinkingabout to buy the K5 II with the 18-135 for 1350 €. The shop gives a refund of 150. Then I could buy a good prime for ~ 400 € (Probably I would need to buy it somewhere else).The alternative is to buy a Nikon D600 for 1600 € (which means to get a Nikkor 50mm F1.8 for free) and buy a Nikon 24-85 fpr ~ 400 €.What does make more sense to you?What would you do?
