I got a K-50 a few months ago and love it. A few weeks ago I started noticing these "squiggles" appearing in my images.  It's not the lens. It happens with any lens I have. I took an air puff to the body to try and remove any particles but that hasn't helped. I'm too scared to brush the mirror or anything. I have the camera set to shake the sensor every time the camera is turned off. Do I have particles on my sensor? Help!

I hope this is the right place to pose these questions and seek advice. Looking for a camera to replace my well-used(and broken) A200, I am trying out a GX7, having chosen it over the K50. I'll use it to photograph grandchildren, landscapes, family, some wildlife and sports. I'm really drawn to the compactness of MFT, and the GX7 seems a good fit for me...except for one issue. The EVF is...disconcerting. After about a week with the GX7 and Panasonic 12-32mm lens, using both the evf and touch...

Hi! I'm not a professional photographer and till now I'm using Olympus gears. I would like to upgrade my gear buying a pro or semi-pro gear what can give me professional results. I'm interested in Sony or Pentax because they are sensor shift stabilised and that's good for me because I like using old fast prime lenses. But I'm quite confused. I like shooting portrait, landscapes and architecture, indoor and outdoor. First I was interested in Pentax K-5 but after I looked at Pentax K-50 and I...

I have a decent understanding of photography basics, having taken a photography course in high school (well, 23 years ago). I even remember the basics of developing B&W film in a dark room. My recent experience has all been with a Kodak Z950 point-and-shoot and Panasonic Lumix ZX35 slightly-more-advanced-point-and-shoot. I am now seeing that what I'd like to do with a camera will require swapping lenses and getting more manual. The camera will be used outdoors 95% of the time. General street...

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...
