Hello, all. Sorry to just join a forum to ask a question, but I really have run out of options. I just received my Pentax k-50 in white in the mail today. I am dismayed to find that the paint finish is flat and not glossy, meaning it will get dirty quickly and not be easy clean. I am returning it and beginning the search to find another. I'm set on the Pentax k-50 and simply want another colour that I can wipe off. Can anyone tell me which colours (of the custom colours or stock colours) you...

All, I'm sorry for asking this since I'm sure it's been asked 1000x before, but I'm weighing the options and trying to get the best camera for the money.  I'm looking for nice DSLR for a beginner with room to grow.  This will primarily be used to take pictures of kids, family outings etc.  I know the K-50 has a handful of features the D3200 doesn't - i.e. image stabilization, weatherproof, better viewfinder etc. so I'm leaning towards it. Questions I have: 1. I see on the cnet review they...

Over at IR they state its between the K-50 and the K-3. Where is it compared to the K-5ll and the K-5lls? Those new features: tilt and swivel, Wi Fi, auto HDR, etc. would have looked nice on the K-5lls. I guess we'll have to wait and see some images from the sensor. What say you?

Does anyone have a theory as to why , on Ebay, I can get a k-50 w lens cheaper than a k-30 w lens? Seems odd.

I recently bought a K50.  It is my first Pentax, and thus I am starting from scratch with lenses.  Along with the kit zoom, I bought the 35mm f/2.4 when I ordered the camera from Adorama because they offered a decent bundle price for it.  I am also receiving a Sigma 50mm f/1.4 today, which I am really excited about, and which has nearly emptied my camera gear budget for the next several months. That being said, I would like to pick up a used manual focus lens for some macro shooting.  (No...

I'm (fairly) heavily invested into Pentax and my trusty and out of warranty K-r is starting to have some problems, so I'm looking to upgrade to a newer model.  The K-50 deals have really been tantalizing, mostly for the change to inexpensively upgrade my kit lenses to WR ones.  That said, my K-r never had an issue with the elements (short of just getting filthy), so it's not a deal breaker by any means.  What would be would be the chance to get better pictures.  How big of a deal to you guys...

I managed to scratch the LCD window on my new K-50 before I got the LCD protector on it. Polishing it just leaves it a bit hazy and I would like to replace it. I found one on eBay and it is for K5/K7. Are the LCD windows also the same for the K-30/K-50? Also does anyone know of a more reasonably priced source for these?  $45 seems it bit much for these.  It does include the tape and...

I'm trying to find an adapter ring to mount a K50 on an old pb-6 bellows. I think I need an F to K adapter ring, but I'm struggling to find where to buy one. My searches have been returning nikon lens to pentax body adapters with corrective glass. Can anyone help please? Also, I have an SMC Pentax-A f2 50mm, which seems to be a decent lens:  http://www.pentaxforums.com/lensreviews/SMC-Pentax-A-50mm-F2-Lens.html Would it be worthwhile figuring out how to mount that reversed, or should I be...

I was satisfied with upgrade my K-x with K50 but some advised me to go with either K5IIS or K3. Now I can find K50 with 18-55 wr and 50-200wr ($546) while K5IIS with18-135 wr ($800) , while K3 with 18-135 wr ($1000). I know K3 is the best, K5IIS is between, but i need some opinions from one who has tried or used them and whether the features differences worth the above prices with regards.
