sold my k-5iis,   which didn't have consistent color ,  especially blues and violets,    not like the k200d or k100d, which have pretty accurate color,    now i have the k-5 for sale as the autofocus is not really that great on the k-5,  i use it mostly manual focusing,  but it's a good camera,    so my question is ,  i guess,    if i sell both cameras,   and use the money for a k-3 ,   will it be any better ?  or should i just keep the k-5 ,   and be content ?

I am interested in the new Sigma 18-200 HSM macro, to be released in April in the UK, but read on the Sigma site that Pentax cameras need to be compatible. Unsure what that meant I contacted Sigma to ask them if it would be fully functional on my K5 11 this was their reply. Roger- You can find more detailed information about the lens on our Global Vision website; http://www.sigma-global.com/en/lenses/cas/product/contemporary/c_18_200_35_63/index.html The specifications listed indicates Sony...

My ancient K100D was stolen and insurance has luckily replaced it with a brand new K30! However  I can not get it to work like either the K100 or my K7: When using flash, either popup or the Metz 58 AF2 I have noticed the following issues (others I am sure) using the 18-55WR: Av consistently sets the shutter speed low.  At 55mm shutter speed is 1/40 zooming out to 18 it drops to 1/15.  Changing aperture or ISO does nothing to these shutterspeeds selected by the camera.  With flash down, it...

Greetings!  I have an old K100D and am thinking of upgrading to something newer, for more megapixels and (I hope) a little less weight.   I have Pentax lenses ... will they automatically be compatible with, say, a K5? Any advice?   TIA! --'Bidden or not bidden, God is present.'

Possibly/Probably a dumb question (please excuse) ...I purchased a Pentax-A 35-105 f3.5 lens on eBay.  Used it the other night with my old Pentax K100D for shooting pics at a basketball game ... pleased with sharp, clear photos.  However ...I either cannot figure out how the zoom works on this lens OR the zoom does not work on this lens.  (Shot all pics at one focal length.)  So, I'm hoping someone with this lens can help.I see the ring on the lens that is marked with the numbers 35 50 80...

I have 7 lenses and K-5IIs. One of them (Tamron 17-50/2.8) requires more than 10 points of autofocus correction. Is there way to use debug menu? I used it for K100D and K-7.If I change AF in debug menu will it be active for all lenses or for mounted lens?

Hello, I would not exactly consider myself a beginner, I've been at it for a few years, but I am looking to upgrade from my Pentax k100d. I shoot pretty much everything, in every type of lighting. My favorite type of photography is HDR. I am looking for a camera that is rugged and can take good quality pictures. I've been looking at the three cameras mentioned in the question and I would appreciate it if someone could advise me on what one I should choose or recommend a different camera. Thanks!

Greeting from the USA here in PA.A number of weeks ago, I had purchased a Vivitar 500mm Mirror Lens that came with a 2x Teleconveter and 3 different Filters.  Since I have never used a Mirror Lens such as this I had really no idea on just how well this would be with my Pentax K100D DSLR.I have been taking this Lens out on, what I call, a "learning process" to get to know how this Lens will work.  Since you can not change to AV Setting and always is a fixed apature setting of f/4.  I've been...
