Hi everybody (that owns this lens)... I am wondering if my lens needs repair or service. I havent used the FA* 300mm f4.5 lens in a while, but used it on a K-30 last weekend. And it was annoyingly "jittery". I mean the camera would "change its mind" on where to lock focus very often (fractions of seconds). Sometimes it would not settle at all. This was very small increments - not hunting between close and infinity focus lock. It was so bad that I missed quite a few shots. More...

I have had a Nikon 1 V1 for a while and have achieve great results in photography and video. But due to the small number and high prices of lenses, I'd like to upgrade. The Pentax K-30 seems great. It has everything I need and seems to produce great results. Is it a wise option to upgrade? Could the K-30 produce images comparable to these (http://www.flickr.com/photos/97648886@N02/sets/72157634414789821/ all images on here were taken by me on my V1)? Thanks in advance! -Luke

Looking for an entry level mount to track stars, and avoid star trails. Using a Pentax k30 with a range of lenses, nothing overly big or heavy for now though.

I'm considering between Omd vs k30. It might cross the line for the system. I'm not the professional photographer but I love to take a photo. I pick these two choices because the image quality, vf, w/r, ibs and don't mind about the size. I have look through both sample image and read some of articles. However, I'm still wondering which one could perform better in image quality. The micro4/3 and apsc, will these both systems can use for long term among the coming sensor competition era. should...

Hi, all, Probably I should just resign myself to staying on the line with customer service for a couple hours, but: I've had my K-30 since last November, and since I was enjoying it so much as it was, I'm embarrassed to admit that I didn't bother to check the manual and see why my shake reduction wasn't on--until this past week. I was sure it was some little thing that I needed to correct. But now I've read the manual, and every instruction I try to follow leaves me with the same problem: the...

I promise, I did a LOT of reading of forum posts on this. But, it didn't help much. All I want to know is: Has anyone removed the Ricoh pin from a Sorry, Vivitar 2X Macro TC? I'm talking about the one with A contacts. (Although I suppose only A-mount types have the Ricoh pin; I've never seen one on the K-mount version.) Maybe, as a corollary, I'd like to ask: Does anyone own the Vivitar 2X Macro TC w/ Ricoh pin, and use it with no problems on their Pentax? I have a bit of experience with...

My K30 is exhibiting some frustrating behavior. In all exposure and metering modes at 0.00ev and a single center focal point, I have been getting wildly different exposures shooting the same scene. Here are some test shots converted in LR 5 at standard defaults using the DA 70 2.4, but all my lenses are doing this: 1/250, f/2.4 ISO200 1/125, f/2.4, ISO100 Also: 1/400, f/2.4, ISO 200 1/160, f/2.4, ISO 100 1/400, f2.4, ISO 100 and, using live-view: 1/10, f/2.4, ISO 100 It's all over...

Hi, Yes, I know the K30 has 100% VF coverage. However, I wear glasses and have to stick my face 1 nose on the LCDto be able to take advantage of it. I tried my Pentax 1.2X magnifier but the clearance with the LCD screen is not that much better. Can anyone recommend ( or post a link ) to some 3rd party alternatives that you may use if you are in the same situation?   Thank you!
