Hi.I am new to DSLR, and thus in need of a camera. ;) I have read and compared a lot, tried the grips etc, but I am not quite sure what camera to go for just yet. I am considering 3 options right now, and since I'm new I'm thinking I should try to limit my budget somewhat.In addition I think I should start with something quite "all-round" and familiarize myself better with what I think it's fun to take pictures of, before spending more cash on lenses and other equipment. What's smart to start...

Hi.I'm quite new to DSLR and consider buying a K-30 for my first "real" camera. But I am a bit undecided as to exactly what kit I should go for.I want a WR lens kit, because the WR is perhaps the main reason why I would choose K-30 instead of another entry-level SLR-camera (there are cheaper alternatives out there).I will be taking most pictures outside (moving animals, landscape, various light etc) and I know that from what I've tried of photography so far, I would like some zoom. I've...

Hi,It is no secret that there is many heated discussions related to possibility of cheating by some manufacturers with high ISO performance of their cameras. While DPR has not discovered any signs of the cheating, I still have a few concerns regarding the methodology used by DPR to obtain the samples for the DPR Scene Comparison Tool (SCT). I believe this discussions were caused by the confusion SCT caused while presenting High ISO images.Let's consider for example how Scene Comparison Tool...

I'm new here and user of Pentax film cameras since 1966.Have some Pentax primes from the old days and considering experimenting with them on my K30 DSLR. There is lots of info here on the subject but to fish out specific answer I found difficult.Here is my question: M42 conversion adapter rings come from wide range of places and prices. What is the best value vs quality experience you have and from where can I get them?So far, my impression is that level of experience in this forum I can...

I would appreciate any reasonable suggestions or advice with the following:B&H have a current K30 bundle (18-50mm lens) for $619.00 and the Sigma 18-250 discounted to $399.00. This would be $1018.00 (free shipping) total. It appears to be a very good "deal".The big "however" for me is less the affordability than the justification of jumping to the $1000.00 + range for a camera that I would not be using rigorously year round.Over the years I have moved from a Nikon 6006 to an 8008 and then to...

Hello, I'm starting on in digital photography. Over the last couple months, my research has narrowed me down to the Pentax K-30. I've recently posted a similar question in the "Beginners Forum," but was hoping to get some specific feedback from Pentax shooters. I plan to do a lot of wildlife and landscape photography. For instance, I will be shooting wildlife on big-game hunts with my father. I could use some feedback on these to...

for K-30 camera body: I've got a Minolta Rokkor-X MD f1.4 50mm lens, and I'm trying to decide if it's redundant to my Pentax-DA 35mm F2.4 AL. I can buy an MD --> K mount adapter, but what I don't know is whether the result will still effectively be an f1.4 lens, or I'l lose enough light that I might as well use the Pentax f2.4 and forget the older lens. It's about a $70 swing, because the adapter (Fotodiox) costs about $40, or I could try to just sell the lens on ebay and maybe if I'm lucky...

I have had my new DA* 200 lens checked by Pentax and they say it is ok. They have calibrated it to my K30 yet it does not begin to give sharp iq until it is stopped down to f4. For what is supposed to be a pro quality lens and described as giving excellent IQ I find that unacceptable or am I expecting too much???
