Ron, My "new" Pentax 1.7x AFA arrived today.  DA* 300/4 shows reports maximum aperture of f6.7 on the K20D.  Is that correct, 2 stops? Of course it's finally raining here so no pictures yet. Thanks, --Chris=-=-=-=-=-http://www.flickr.com/photos/36153401@N08/collections/http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8167/7225835232_e69a46d418_q.jpg

Hey all. So, ive been using a pentax K20d for the last year or so.  Im looking at switching to the D7000.  One of the major reasons for this is the noise performance. I tend to quite a bit of photography at night (particularly portrait photography) and anything above iso 400 tends to lose quite a bit of detail.  So, my question is how does the D7000 do in low light with high iso? The problem with this of course is that i am restricted to slow shutter speeds so it is impossible to capture any...

Hello, I'm on the fence to upgrade from K20D to K-5 II or K-3. I'm running into the limits of my K20D when I try to take pictures of people dancing salsa at parties. My setup is K20D, Metz Mecablitz 50 AF-1 and DA SMC 16-45 f/4. The venues are dark. (1/6 sec F/4 ISO 1600 without flash) When taking portraits of standing or sitting guests the autofocus takes seconds to lock, even when using the red focus light on the Metz 50 AF-1. It bothers me but I can live with that. Taking shots of dancing...

I just received a brand new waterproof O-RC1 remote for my Pentax cameras - but, unfortunately, it seems to be dead on arrival. I tried it with both my K20D and my Q - both set to remote controlled shutter release mode, of course - but without success. I guess I need a replacement or do you know of an activation process for the remote. My last cheapo one worked out of the box. Thanks for your help. --JanMy photos:http://www.flickr.com/photos/rosember/http://www.pentaxphotogallery.com/

My Vivitar Series 1 1.4x TC was waiting in the mailbox when I came in this evening. I was playing around with it, but I noticed that it was reporting the full aperture of the lens. As in, I could still get f/1.4 on my FA 50, even though it should only be f/2. It says the focal length is 50mm as well. Perhaps that's why the instructions say to turn off SR. I haven't had time to play with it in decent light to see if it's underexposing The body is a K20d. Is this normal? P.S. - I didn't buy it...

Hi again... :-), In my experience the K01 decides what to focus on, in a variable way. Is this normal and is there a setting to use a fixed focus point in auto/green mode ? In Av or Tv or other modes i can choose what kind of focus point and it's even possible to place the focus point, fixed, off-centre on the display etc.. But ... NOT in AUTO/GREEN mode, in my experience, or.... am i overlooking something ???? Please advise and thanks in advance. --;-) rgrds. Henk (K-01, K20D&DBG-2,...

Hi everybody, When i put my K01 in Av mode, with AF/s, and i move the cam i hear, at about every move, a klicking-like sound. In finding out how come i looked into the lens and think i saw the diaphragma opening and closing every time i point and something else. This is done automatically by the cam: i'm leaving all buttons free. Is this a standard 'thing' or else ? Hope somebody here knows the answer and thanks in advance. :-) --;-) rgrds.

Is it any bigger or brighter?  Does it have a longer eye relief for eye glass wearers than the K20D?   --'I got a Pentax camera. I love to take a photograph, so mama don't take my Photoshop away.'

What is your recent experience with Pentax USA repair?  The knob to switch from auto-focus to manual focus broke into pieces today.  Was it expensive?  Was it a good experience?  Was the turn around resonable?  Should I consider any one else to effect the repair? Thanks, Harold --'I got a Pentax camera. I love to take a photograph, and momma done took my Kodchrome away!'

Hi guys,My almost 5 year old K20D used to nail AF for most shots back in the day, if something was out of focus it almost always could be attributed to user error. But lately I think it has begun to behave erratically, sometimes AF works fine, sometimes it back focus by large amounts with same lens, even though using 1 point AF with contrasty subject in the middle of screen.It happens more often with some lenses (DA35Ltd), but I have seen it with other as well. So, I am just curious, can AF...
